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)

Chimonanthus praecox in the snow
Chimonanthus has one of the best fragrances in the floral kingdom, and it flowers in winter. I smelled the flowers 20 feet away from the plants. Apparently they don't care that temperatures have barely risen above freezing for a week.
