Someday...

...I shall plant a Witch Hazel tree.

I fell in love with this genus of trees (hamamelis) when I was first introduced to it back in college.  We were traipsing around the Washington Park Arboretum identifying plants with our professor.  And I knew right then that someday I would plant a Witch Hazel tree.

My "someday" hasn't arrived yet.  But I'll just keep visiting the Witch Hazel trees at the Arboretum until it does.
