Hamamelis x intermedia 'Diane'

It’s a very cold and snow-covered Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day post, even one day late.  The only flower that shows in the yard is the super hardy red witch hazel that I’ve pictured above.  Everything else is frozen off or covered with a foot or more of snow.  I have hopes that things may thaw out this week in the mean time here are some of the greenhouse flowers that are maintaining my flower equilibrium.
