o, euonymus

20 years ago, I thought you were so dumb.

Why choose a bore, when options abound – delphinium! campanula! baptisia!

Three of each, please, in a cottage garden.

Oh…

Now I see.

Your tiny chartreuse leaves – spring’s brightest tease. Your autumn bursts – glorious crescendo!

Your sturdiness and easy manner.

Older, practical me loves brilliant scarlet, maintenance-free you.
