'TIS THE SEASON FOR RED BERRIES TO APPEAR IN THE LANDSCAPES (A RED BERRY PHOTO BLOG)


Hi Everybody!!
We have arrived at the Red Berry Days of Fall. Around the Sanctuary in November, the different fruits and seeds turn bright red, dotting the green trees.  I have winter guests (the birds) who will eat all of the berries by spring! I snapped a few pics around the grounds to show You some of the red jewels in my yard. I have shared identifying info from Wikipedia, but please click on link to view the complete article. Your extended photostudy is at the links below to my G+ Photo Albums. I will share with you the following advice to teach your children about the woods:  If You see the pretty red berries, seeds, drupes, etc.-DO NOT EAT- For birds only until You have the correct knowledge to know what is what. (Take your own snacks in your back pack). Enjoy and photograph all the different red berries You see!
