illustration friday (burning)


A branch of the shrub known as "Burning Bush" (aka Winged Euonymus or Spindle Tree): Euonymus alata "Compactus." Though unremarkable for most of the year, when Autumn comes, it appears as if it has burst into flames.

  1. Isn't that an amazing plant? I'd never seen one until I went to Missouri. Glad that Japan has the pleasure as well.
    Thanks for your comment about my IF/Burning effort.

  13. I remember first seeing one of these bushes in New York. They really do "burn". Wonderfully appropriate and very nicely done. I'd never heard of etegami before visiting here and I love it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments.
