Update: OK, so I should have ran these by The Dragon before posting, because as per usual, he has a pretty good guess: Euonymus europea, the spindle tree. See image, below, that I took at Klyn Nurseries in '04 (now that was a trip).

(That's Debbie, on the left, with former RCGC ED Susan Latoski on one
of our Odyssey to Ithaca tours.) I've seriously been in need of office
help for a while now, but the timing just hasn't been right. Or maybe,
just a little, I was waiting for Deb. Anyway, when I heard she was
resigning her position at the Rochester Civic Garden Center you can be
sure I wasted no time trying - successfully! - to lure her over to the
dark side. I mean, the UGJ. I've known Debbie for fifteen years and
worked fairly closely with her for most of them, in one way or
another, and I'm totally confident she's going to be a HUGE help! Deb
will be taking care of subscriptions and is also our new calendar
Here is a blossom from the tree peony High Noon, which was a gift from Ruah Donnelly a few years ago when she was our house guest while researching her book The Adventurous Gardener (see sidebar). She bought it at Phoenix Flower Farm. It's totally, terrifically gorgeous.
