Regents Park

I was feeling a little overworked and overwrought the other day, so I thought I’d go for a stomp around Regent’s Park and feel the calming effects of some green space.

This stopped me in my tracks. It’s a Euonymus europaeus ‘Red Cascade’, I think. When you read descriptions of it, they mostly mention its excellent autumn leaf colour. But last week it was smothered in lipstick-pink seed pods, which look like tiny, drooping flowers. They lit up this corner of the park.
