SIGH... Thanks to my ever vigilant readers.... let me add this to the previous BERRY INTERESTING post. First, I have been real impressed with the quantity of berries this year because we have had quite a drought. I believe I mentioned that in a post about the quantity of blooms on the camellias, but meant to mention it on the BERRY post, too. Thanks for reminding me, Frank (another observant neighbor!)

Second, it took me all day to get that post done. Blogger took 40 minutes to decide to tell me the picture was posted only to click on done and find a tiny box with an x in it - ie - no picture. Finally, having most of but not all my berry pictures on there - I just gave up and realized -
Third, I had not identified the bushes. sigh. Maybe it is the pain medicine, maybe it is the pain - I dunno - but the brain is not up to snuff these past few days. Maybe it is the frustration of not being able to walk and I am not "bouncing" back like I think I should. Whatever... The plants are, from top to bottom: American Holly (female), Nandina, Pyracantha, and Pyracantha (firethorn), Ligustrum, Beautyberry Bush (Callicarpa Americana), and Poke berry or Poke weed minus the berries! They had already been eaten. But dontcha love the color of the leftovers????
If I have something wrong or left something out, I am sure one of you will set me straight! Thanks for reading, looking, and checking up on me!
Now could I get one of you guys to fill me birdfeeders for me????

Yep, looks like you are going to have a bad winter.
Blogger gave me fits the other day. Walked away for an hour or so and when I came back it was working at the speed of light. It has a mind of its own.

Thanks for identifying the bushes and berries. I am always frustrated by not knowing the names of things. Edible wild plants and how to cook them is an interest of mine.

Oh, if I lived near you I would certainly fill those feeders for you. I hope you mend soon and are feeling better!!
