winter-flowering ornamental cherry tree


Sorting through my latest camera work, I found a few lucky photos which overcome bright back-lighting, shooting through a window and fast moving honey bees.  In the backyard, the winter-flowering ornamental cherry tree bloom looks great and attracts honey bees too.  In some sunny locations, mahonia is or is about to bloom and spiderwort are still in bloom.

In Atlanta, November and the first half of December have been warm. NOAA climatology based on El Niño have yet to develop into cooler mid-Atlantic weather.  I'm watching the Arctic Oscillation 7 day forecast closely for a negative downturn before adding the bee cozy hive wrap.
