As we were posting our Garden Bloggers Bloom Day I mentioned that we should post about our berries at this time. Mr McGregor's Daughter took me up on the suggestion since there are so many berries at this time in our garden. After all this is the time of year that our plants have worked so hard to get to. The time to set fruit and multiply. The birds are most grateful for these Beauty Bush berries. The Beauty Bush really lives up to its name at this time. These lavender berries are hard to beat. Our White Dogwood tree has quite a few berries on it. I am surprised because the birds get after them so.
The berries on the pyracantha are a deeper red orange this year. I wonder if the drought of the past couple of months has made this change in their color. It sure hasn't seemed to reduce their bounty any.
The Dutch Lonicera has scads of berries. I hope to enjoy them all a little longer until the marauding AsRobins descend upon the garden. It is such a treat to watch them devour the berries.We also have holly berries, Hawthorn Tree berries. The Fleece flowers are about to toss about their seeds and even a few dried up blackberries the birds have missed. Do you have any berries to show us?
