Today's Flowers: Burning Bush


This week I searched my archives to find something that I hadn't posted and found this image of a Burning Bush from my Mom's yard that I took last October. At that time it was just beginning to change colors to its vibrant scarlet foliage. It was already full of the small red-orange fruit it bears in the fall. I hope you enjoy.


Waste no tears
Upon the blotted record of lost years,
But turn the leaf, and smile, oh! smile, to see
The fair white pages that remain for thee.”

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
(American poet and writer 1850-1919)

Beautiful colors. My neighbor's burning bush is now all beige and twiggy. Look forward to watching the little spring buds popping up on the bushes.

Fall colors are nice any time of the year. Soon you will have flowers again. I like the poem.
