I promise not to post any more after this...
Above: a witch hazel, Hamamelis x intermedia 'Diane' already colouring for fall.
Below, Hydrangea pan. 'Grandiflora' - a sprawly one, not the oft-seen standard.
And the Franklinia...maybe I am smitten, after all. It has a soft scent of roses, and rain drops look like diamonds on the white petals.
Not a rose, but the camellia opening! I think it likes its new home. It was a city camellia after all.
