What Are These Berries?

Every day when we hike I see these  beautiful bushes covered in these incredible purple berries!  I love the color of the berries, they are my favorite color and the color of our front door.  They almost shimmer in the morning sunlight, and all around them the fall colors just make the purple more distinct.  Every fall I tell myself I want a sweater this exact color of purple!

On the way home tonight a gentle rain began to was so good to smell the earthy scent of fresh rain on dry soil.  I hope it rains all night!  It was worth not seeing the full moon, to have the rain falling down.

I said goodbye to a couple of students today.  I should be use to this by now, but I am not, and never will be.
I am great with hellos, but lousy with good byes.  I tell them goodbye with a hug and a prayer, and the urging to live their lives like  they were born to live find their purpose and keep peace in their hearts.

My great nephew Jordan comes to spend the day tomorrow, so I need my rest!
Good night, Sweet dreams.


  1. Ahhh a day with Jordan sounds like just what the Dr ordered! Are those Beautyberries? Hope you're feeling better. Hugs~

  2. Beauty Berries. Aside from being so pretty to look at I hear that if you make a tea from the leaves and berries it makes a good mosquito repellant. Word is you put the tea in a spray bottle and spray it on.

    I can't attest to that personally though, because I haven't tried it yet. It's on the list to try because what can it hurt?

  3. Beauty is a lovely name for those berries.

  4. Although they are very beautiful to look at I am a bit suspicious if they are edible.Would be interesting to find out what they are;)

  5. Oh my goodness those berries are beautiful. Purple is my favourite colour :-)

  6. What gorgeous vivid berries!! Have a great evening! Take care

  7. I think I want a nail polish in that same color. On my toes and fingers!

  8. I don't know the name, but beauty sounds like it should be it's name! A sweater would look so cute in that color. The full moon was spectacular last night, but rain is coming our way from your way. Have fun with Jordan!
