The Decorated Stick

Sometimes I think nothing is going on around here

and then I look and realize I have been missing things.

My expensive stick ( Edgeworthia / Chinese Paper Bush) that turned into a lovely shrub over the summer has become a decorated stick.

Its leaves have dropped to reveal silky white buds hanging down like holiday baubles.

These glow in the morning sunshine.

Things happen in the garden year-round in the south.

You just have to pay close attention to notice.

  1. Very interesting photos. Yes, in the South things in the yard try to hang on to Summer and you discover things in December that should not still be growing. I try to walk around our 3 acres now and then to see what is going on.
