Garden Tuesday – Berries

One of the many signs of fall is the profusion of berries that seem to develop almost over night. I’ve never understand how birds know which berries are okay to eat and which ones are not. These must not be okay because this cluster arrives every fall and lasts all winter. I keep promising to get all Martha Stewart-y and cut these and artfully place them around the house in cute little vases, but thankfully I never do. Because really, aren’t they gorgeous, exactly how they are?

    These are lovely. I must have berries that aren’t ok too. I would watch the birds to see if certain berries were good to eat if I was ever lost in the woods. Which I don’t plan to be but you never know.

    From the glimpse of the leaves these are a sacred bamboo, sometimes called Nandina. Such a pretty plant, with white flowers and those glorious red berries – we have some in our garden too (though it’s summer here in Australia, so no Autumn colours). The leaves are lovely picked and arranged in a vase – even if you keep the berries on the tree!
    PS – I just visited you via blogger’s blogs of note page.

    We have the same plants here in Oregon, and all kinds of others that have lovely berries with evergreen type leaves. The old sweet gum oak out in my back yarn has our world on fire! Happy fall!

    The best I can do is cutting some holly sprigs and putting them in a big footed bowl. Luckily, holly will last a month, and that’s as Martha Stewart-y as I ever get!

    What a pretty picture. Unfortunately, nothing grows where I live (the desert). So I can live vicariously through your pictures.

    Welcome to Tyler Florence Fridays – I can’t wait to see what you have made!
