Winter Jewels

“On the motionless branches of some trees, autumn berries hung like clusters of coral beads, as in those fabled orchards where the fruits were jewels . . .” – Charles Dickens

  1. Lovely! I’m surprised you were able to find any berries left on the V. trilobum; the birds have longago stripped them from here, although some of the barberry, rosa multiflora, and other rosehips still survive.
    Tacky weather again today–the snow of the other day was just lovely, we don’t need this wet crap that’s coming down now!

  2. Thanks for identifying the shrub, Jodi! I took this last weekend, right outside our door. It’s one of my favorite shrubs here on the apartment building property — I love that it’s so fragrant when it blooms.

  3. great photo! We folks who love to take pictures must be on the same wave length. I took over a hundred photos yesterday and 4 of them were of the shocking red rose hips (though I realize yours is a berry) against the brilliant snow.

    Been enjoying your posts but Blogger won’t always allow me to leave messages. Lovely, lovely as usual Nancy.
