VERY BERRY








Well, I should say " very berry, fruit and seed".
October and November are a wonderful time to celebrate the harvest of the season and see what nature has produced. Often forgotten by many gardeners, the fruit and seeds of many of our ornamentals are very important. Its such a lovely site to come upon a Viburnum, Hawthorne, or Rugosa Rose with their beautiful fruit. What a shame that this charming feature is sometimes overlooked.
Adding to the texture of fall these precious gems give us one last boost of colour before their winter rest, adding to Autumns glory.

You're a gardener after my own heart, Bob! I've gone out of my way to plant things that produce fruits and berries (and seeds)...as much for the birds and wildlife as for the beauty factor (and eating too, of course!)

I'm going to think more about this. the berries looks lucious. I love to have things the birds will eat also.
