One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

The before picture. Not quite monochromatic, but certainly less colorful than those flower in Polyouse 8!
On sunny days the Hamamelis seem quite brilliantly colored, but this wasn't a sunny day. The snow started falling about 10:00 and because Federal employees in Washington were released 4 hours early, We were free to go at 11:00. I hung around till 1:00 though. I couldn't help myself. It took two hours to get home but it was well worth it.
I'll take this picture again on Monday or whenever we go back to work. The forecast has been increased to 2-3 feet of snow. I'm thinking 3 feet could shut us down for a while.
