Apparently my Physocarpus opulifolius’s feelings of being under appreciated were due to the fact that I have written a number of blog posts about the Tulipa and Paeonia suffruiticosa, which grow in my terrace garden, and I have also allowed both of them to write their own blog entries.
It seems my Physocarpus opulifolius was feeling neglected for not having been chosen to be a part of these collections. In any event, you may recall that when my Physocarpus opulifolius expressed his thoughts in his blog entry he looked like this:
“What about featuring me? After all, with my coppery–orange foliage, I provide a beautiful contrast (if I do say so myself) to the H.F. Young Clematis whose leaves you can see to my left in the photograph posted above this blog entry, and if you look closely, you might even see the many, many buds that are about to burst into gorgeous purple flowers, which of course, The Last Leaf Gardener blogged about last year without mentioning my name.”
