{Our Wintersweet - Chimonanthus praecox}


  • Like last year around Christmas time, this year we also had some lovely fragrant blooms from our Wintersweet or Chimonanthus praecox (Calycanthus p.) (C. fragrans). 
  • Therefore I want to share these blossoms and buds with you here...
  • No leaves but blooms...

  • The light in our kitchen was just perfect for taking these photos. 
  • We kept only a few blossoms ourselves and I did deliver a small vase to a dear friend that is recovering from her knee replacement. 
  • Hope she was able to enjoy them.

  • Hope you enjoyed these beautiful winter blooming Chimonanthus praecox (Calycanthus p.) (C. fragrans).

  9. Wunderschön, liebe Mariette!
    Ich kannte diese Pflanze noch nicht.
    Aber hier wächst ja leider auch nicht alles, was bei Euch problemlos gedeiht.

    Danke auch für die Links. Ich habe nur so meine Befürchtungen, was solche Bestellungen in den USA betrifft. Das ist für so wenig Stoff, den wir brauchen, doch zu aufwändig. Aber ich werde gern mal bei dem genannten Blog anfragen. Vielen herzlichen Dank!

    Liebe Grüße und einen guten Rutsch in das Neue Jahr 2012!
    Sara

  13. Hello dear Mariette,
    These blooms are so beautiful and so delicate!

    Thank you for your comments. I'm glad you liked my little angel. I loved how it looked in the pictures with your beautiful camellia.

    I'm so busy now. My father-in-law is visiting from Norway. And the the day after tomorrow is Viktor's birthday as well as New Year's Eve.

    Happy New Year to you and Pieter. Best wishes for 2012!
