Chimonanthus and hammamelis – flower and fruit sketch

I think it`s time to say goodbye to the winter. A last look at this two beautiful winter shrubs: Chimonanthus praecox and Hammamelis virgiana. I wanted to know more about the apparent complicated structure of Chimonanthus and I was so happy to find a witch-hazel with seedpods among the flowers.
