I take photos of the witch hazel every year when it blooms. I think it’s because I’m just so glad to see some colour in the garden. This bush shines like a little beacon in the darkest corner of the garden, close to the compost bin, and I don’t always notice it straight away, but when I do it makes me feel really happy. Those delicate yellow ribbons are a sign that there’s much more to come…Spring is on her way.

Oh wow! Does it smell like the bottle of witch hazel you buy in boots?
Hm I’m not sure – I’ve never smelled the stuff in the shops! There is a very slight scent from my witch hazel – I always have to breathe on it to warm it up before I can smell anything though!
