Autumn berries

It’s been a good year for autumn berries. I hope that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a harsh winter as, the old wives tale, goes.

Earlier in the year I photographed the three coloured berries of our climbing plant which, with a bit of research, turned out to be amur peppervine or porcelain berries. These have now all turned blue.

The pirocanthus which is growing with it has retained it’s glorious red berries.

Amazing red berries

These berries give us a splash of colour to look out on from our kitchen window. They are as striking as the wonderful autumn leaves that are all around at the moment. The autumnĀ  beauty is lingering this year which is lovely.

      We are surprised that the birds haven’t eaten more of them. We have loads of birds visit the garden but at the moment I think there is an abundance of food for them. We have woodland behind us. I always have two fat blocks hanging from the rose arches and during the harsher parts of winter and also in spring when birds have chicks they disappear really quickly but at the moment they are hardly touched. The blackbirds do like the berries on the hymalayian honeysuckle.
