Spring Into Fall (Stillwater Diary)

Even if I liked forsythia better, even if the plant were a hydrangea, it would have been obvious that the unruly bush needed trimming.

As I considered its north and west sides, and whether or not to let the leaves turn before pruning this summer’s exuberant growth spurt, I spotted bits of yellow and red in the green. A few very late or (even more unsettling) a few very early flowers were keeping company with a few seasonally appropriate leaves.

I’ll trim when the branches are bare.
