Did you know that golden privet turns purple in the fall and even has purple berries?
It's a lovely bright chartreuse color. I do enjoy shrubs that have a dramatic seasonal color change.

In this view you can see the other two burning bushes in the rockwall garden where it used to live.
Here it is looking through lavender seed heads from the garden directly across the grass path:
In addition to moving this monster shrub, we spent a few more hours digging, hauling heavy furniture to the basement, etc.
When we went outside at 9:00 a.m. everything was covered in a light sheet of ice! It got down to 28 degrees last night.
Ice on the top of the potting bench:
Now we are both pooped and just relaxing as we await the chicken/potato stack dinner I have in the oven.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
