Mahonia Japonica in FLower

Post by georgedingwall »

Hi all,

It's been such a mild winter so far where I live, that my Mahonia Japonica is coming into flower several weeks ahead of when it normally does. This is the same shrub as I used in the Christmas Baubles image I posted recently. The flower is about half an inch across. Looks a lot like a miniature Daffodil.

4 seconds @ F22.

Bye for now.

You know it does look like a daffodil, I would probably have never noticed had you not pointed it out. Very nice. :D

Very nice George! :D I like little waxy flowers of all kinds.
