My witch hazel bloomed!

I don't have photos because the blooms were promptly nuked by the icy weather we're having, so they are rather sad little crispy nubbins, but it actually bloomed! I planted that sapling in the fall two years ago and it has never done ANYTHING--it put out leaves like it thought photosynthesis was gauche--and I had sort of given up on any hope of anything but a long, lingering demise, but it BLOOMED!
