Simon says this is my face.
Simon gets a bad rap for his “botox” look—the mask, the cold, seemingly judgmental stare. Get over it! It’s not about Simon, it’s your own baggage from when your mom or dad looked at you that way, or maybe it was a teacher that just wanted you to be a better student than you knew you could be. He’s standing next to the golden hops, Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus,’ with its spring red-violet stems and yellow-green leaves. Stunning.
