At The Corner




Here is what I think was the cutest little tree at the corner! The pictures were taken last month at
Colonial Williamsburg, around the time when the big trees are putting out their colorful show.
This little tree, or bush, was also making a big statement at the corner, behind a white picket fence.
I have no idea what the name of it is! It caught my attention because from far way it looked like a forsythia bush to me. I had to get close and find out if it was possible that a forsythia was blooming in the fall.




   



I know I've said no more posts about leaves, but these are not leaves. These are little ribbons!
Does anybody knows what type of tree or bush is this?


Thank you for your visit!!

  12. Why I've never heard of Witch Hazel trees before but they are pretty cool and it did look nice paired with the white picket fence.

  13. Yes, witch hazel! I couldn't remember and had to look at Margaret's comment to jar my memory. Williamsburg only has indigenous, time-proper trees and shrubs and this one is an oldie. It is a fascinating plant! Yes, also loved the houses in the photos! Great post!

    Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
