Prunus mume 'Tohji-bai' alongside the path to the Pagoda

We drove through blinding snow on the way north yesterday and this morning was no picnic but by midday the sun was out and it had warmed up enough to be a quite pleasant day. The two days under 20F last week weren't enough to stop the Camellias; many of the fall blooming crosses are still flowering and the Camellia japonica selections are beginning to pop here and there. Many of the Prunus mume varieties are in full bloom; Joan told me her's is on the way out!
