Winter's flowers

On the Tribeca terrace planted a few months ago, the Edgeworthia papyrifera has developed flower buds that will stay all winter (I hope!) on the strangely succulent-like branches, and which will open in pre-spring, to perfume the garden.

Below, the Camellia 'Winter's Snowman' is in full bloom in three places on the terrace, even after some very serious winds burned the maples' leaves to a crisp.

The Fargesia rufa (clumping bamboo) below is still green and shows no signs of being nipped at the edges.
