hamamelis

Witch hazel, beautifully flowering in our garden.
I didn't know that the name witch in witch-hazel has its origins in Middle English wiche, from the Old English wice, meaning "pliant" or "bendable", and is not related to the word witch meaning a practitioner of magic. (Wikipedia)
Knowing the weather in Holland, this is so colorful. Beautiful! how lovely to have this in your yard.

It's such an interesting plant. Thanks for the information about its name, I had always assumed that it was associated with witchcraft.
