Christmas Berries

Rick upgraded my iPhone this week, I barely knew how to use the other one.......but I know that this iPhone 4 makes great photos!

As we walked the dogs this morning before the next wave of rain came, I saw these beautiful red berries  at the edge of the woods.  I know there is a proper name for them, I see them used as ornamentals  in yards around the county.  But this bush is growing wild in our woods and it just looked like Christmas!

It is a patch of brilliance in the earth tones of the woods.  Winter has cloaked our woods in grays and browns, while mother nature takes her rest.......the flash of red and green seemed so cheery, so festive!  Even nature seems to celebrate
the season of light.

I have wrapped presents, baked two kinds of biscotti, had lunch with a friend, visited sick friends and relatives........and the rain
came down in torrents.  I am chilled to the bone.  It will be a race to the bed tonight......I think I will beat
 Blackie Bear, even though he is snoring loudly right now.

Good night, Sweet dreams.


  1. You've had a busy productive day. I used to have a tree in my yard that had red berries on it during winter. When the tree was covered in snow it was gorgeous. Get a good night's sleep. :)

  2. The birds will have some winter food! Yay! Love that nature does look after its own when left alone.

    Sweet dreams lovely Jilda and adorable Blackie Bear! Take care

  3. What a busy day you've had! The berries are beautiful.

  4. It's great the way nature celebrates every season with us! Great photos..enjoy your new toy! Sounds like you've been busy but ready for the holiday. Have a Merry Christmas!
