I walk by this little tree every day. It is located just outside of the Spencer Engineering Building on the UWO Campus. I had no idea it was a Witch Hazel until just a few days ago. I was sitting in class and like I often do, got distracted and looked out the window. I noticed this little plant covered with yellow flowers. I immediately knew what it was and decided to get a picture as soon as I could.
I really like this plant. It's one of the few that flowers this late in the season. It's a little splash of colour in an otherwise greying landscape. I'm glad I get to walk by it everyday and was really surprised that I hadn't noticed it earlier.
