  • I’m envious too ... they don’t like our very chalky soil ... you can look forward to some wonderful autumn colour 🍁

    One of my faves for autumn colour. We're lucky to have dozens of them in the  garden

    I love them but have never had one in any garden. I should really think about it. They're stunning  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Euonymus are so underrated.
    I love them all.
    The flowers may be tiny and easily missed but some have stunning autumn colour and interesting seed capsules.
    Especially Euonymus cornutus quinquecornutus with is fascinating seed capsules.see first pic.
