    There were lots of flowers in bloom yesterday, but I was mostly ignoring them. Here's what caught my attention.

    Cunninghamia lanceolata 'Glauca', in a pot just past the entrance gate, with a seed cone and pollen cones. I don't usually catch the new green seed cones.

    Cephalotaxus harringtonia
    var. drupacea, quite near the Cunninghamia, with cones. I think the small faceted things must be where cones were attached.

    Schefflera minutistellata, new to me, accessioned three years ago. Interesting whorl of small leaves atop a whorl of larger leaves.

    Ampelopsis megalophylla. This is supposed to be a vine, in the Vitaceae family. I didn't pick up on that looking at it. There are several of these - I hope it's not a thug that will all get yanked out. I've only just learned the name and really like the leaves.
