Fall Berries


 The berries of mountain ash litter the ground but the contrast is so pretty.

Mountain Ash has started dropping leaves and some berries but many will hang on through the winter to add accent on those cold and dreary days.  I love this tree!

Speaking of berries, this little juniper is putting on a nice show of blue berries.

The berries are so pretty even the mountain ash berries on the ground. Soon my mountain ash won't have any berries left as the local robins have been wolfing them down.

Hi Shirley - thank you for paying a visit to my blog. This is a return call - didn't quite know which blog to log on to!

How do you manage to keep berries on your Mountain Ash trees? Here we have one just outside the kitchen window and the berries had all been eaten by thrushes within two days of ripening. Loved your berry photo.

The contrast of berries in your garden is so lovely! Fall is a wonderful time of year, too, isn't it?

Thank you for the visits everyone. By now the robins have all migrated south, leaving only the possibility of cedar waxwings to gorge upon the berries of the mountain ash trees. It is quite the site to see a flock engulf the tree, eating so many berries they cannot fly straight! I hope they come this year as they don't visit every winter.

I saw your name at Lona's and thought I would visit. We still have robins in No. Illinois. They left for a while and now they are back. They do this every year or so.I was out pulling the grass out of the blue rug junipers today and noticed the pretty berries. I like to use junipers for holiday decorating. Balisha
