Burning bush

This year has been amazing for blooming things.  I've been finding all sorts of cool plants that I didn't know were there.    Like this Euonymus atropurpureus.  The common name is Burning Bush, but it's not the kind that the garden centers sell.  [It's also called Eastern wahoo, which is totally ridiculous, so I've decided not to tell you that.]  This is a native tree.   I saw one in our woods once, and in my neighbor's woods once [I'm assuming it wasn't the same tree.  I don't think they're magic walking trees.]  Turns out we have one near the house, too.   I've only seen them in the fall so I didn't realize they had such great flowers.  Click the pic for a closer look.
