The culmination of a plant's lifecycle is the return to the fruit/seed stage of its life - coming full circle from seed, to plant, to flower, to seed again. Fall seems to be the berry-ist time of the year as trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals give the next generation of plant material the virtual 'push out of the nest.' From the fruits that are eaten and the seeds deposited by the consumer, to the wind-borne traveling seeds, to those buried for consumption and later forgotten, nature is preparing for next year's crop ...

Berries of all shapes, sizes, colors make this season even brighter ....Grapes, hawthorne, holly and dozens of others are all a fall delight ... and I love them all!

The cool weather is returning, but before the rains distribute seeds around the landscape, I hope to find more inspirational 'berry' materials to celebrate the season! Hope you do too!

Happy berrying!
