Walking by my Hypericum

I am so glad that I planted this little shrub, Compact Red Hypericum,  by the walkway.

It seems to change every day.  You may know it as a type of St. John’s Wort.

At first, I loved how the dew sat softly on its fuzzy leaves.


Then I saw the rain drops glisten on them like diamonds.


Next came the charming yellow flowers that remind me of strawberry blooms.


Finally, this morning, its first bright red berries formed.


Along with the dew and the rain drops and the flowers.


What a lovely little plant to greet our visitors as they enter our home.
