    Close enough Michael,I'm actually Chimonanthus praecox luteus.For those who may not know this beautiful winter flowering shrub I have attached a few photos.Coincidence is amazing!Today while driving to a lecture at Pershore college,passed Croome Park,Worcestershire.U.K.where in 1766 the Earl of Coventry,recieved the first specimen of C.Praecox to be introduced into the U.K.I found a very good description of this shrub in winter,on this site.
    www.npr.org/programs/talkingplants/profiles/cpraecox.html

    Do take 2 min to read it.
    I found the seed case under the bush ,thought it was a bit different.Since having a digital camera I'm looking at plants a lot more closely.Thanks to everyone who had a go.Guessed the Magnolia hint would give it away to you experts.Hope you all enjoyed my first attempt!
