    Nadia got to the garden before me on Thursday and greeted me with "EVERYTHING is in bloom".

    I'll start out with the featured flower of the day - Daphne Charlton, on the courtyard outside the garden entrance.

    The Xanthoceras sorbifolium was just in bud last week. Now it's open. Last year I posted fruits from this plant.

    The leaves on the Sorbus yuana are not the ones being referenced by the name of the previous plant.

    This is not the same Rehderodendron tree as last week - this is R. macrocarpum. Last week's does not have the species ID, but I think we've mentioned before that it looks pretty similar to this one. It was just an excuse to post photos of it. These might be my second favourite trees.

    Here is Viburnum cimmamomum, and a Cinnamomum japonicum, to show where it gets its name.

    Lonicera quinquelocularis, with cute flower buds, and Nadia reminds me that this has crazy transparent fruits. Interesting bark too.

    Dipelta floribunda, nice flowers and also interesting bark.

    Here's a little colour - Lindera erythrocarpa.
