Witch Hazel is Blooming

A winter gift, Witch Hazel blossoms scent the yard with a sweet, healing aroma.  I had to bring some inside and arrange in this unique vase sent to me by my cousin for Christmas.

Witch Hazel Hamamelis virginiana

Deciduous large shrub with a dense cluster of stems from the base. Cuttings can be forced in December. Prune after flowers fade. Flowers bloom in January, wonderful scented yellow flowers which bloom before the leaves appear.
Use: Leaves – Astringent for bruises, dermatitis, hemorrhoids, varicose veins – topically, lotion is distilled from twigs.
Forked twigs as divining rods for water witching.
NOT FOR INTERNAL USE.
Means: a spell

    It’s a wonderful room deodorizer all winter long. And the yard is scented with it too. I need to get a photo of the whole tree.
