Cornus mas and Jaminum nudum: early yellow in the Asian Collections

I remember a remark by Allen Lacy, philocopher and garden writer, to the effect that there's a superabundance of pink in the spring garden. Except he said it with such wit. Anyway, there's a good shot of yellow before the pink begins to rule and these are major players. Chimonanthus is wrapping up but the witchhazels are still flowering and forsythia is one the way. We already have flowers opening on some Corylopsis but the bulk of that is yet to come.
