Now in my seventh January in South Carolina I remain delighted by the winter blooming jonquils that pop up in unexpected places. In New England these would be a sure sign that spring was right around the corner. Here, winter, although shorter, is just getting started.
Most of the ones I’ve seen this year are yellow.
These were along the heavily wooded “nature train road” at Magnolia Plantation.
Early afternoon last week some dappled sun was reaching the blooms.
