Blossoms of the Witch Hazel - the Golden Queen

Although I have already seen blooming Hamamelis in January in my hometown Freiburg, I now discovered the most beautiful little bush of Hamamelis here in Munich now. The blossoms were huge and the backlit situation added a lot to its delicate beauty...
And it's also a very valuable healing plant - creme with hamamelis extract is used for all kinds of skin irritations and little wounds.
