Congress Street


Two unusually large Euonymous alatus (winged euonymous) between Court and Clinton, behind the catholic church, in today's dusting of snow. An invasive shrub, I forgive these two, as they have a lovely shape and gorgeous red fall colour. Every year someone hacks at their branches in an ignorant fashion, leaving protruding stumps, in an attempt to curtail their growth.

25'F/-3'C, and we are going for a walk.

  1. I have a small Euonymus alatus which, for 11 months of the year, is the dullest of the dull, dull plants til, as you rightly say, has gorgeous Autumn colour.
