Bursting With Berries.

As I was walking around outside yesterday, I realized our yard is bursting with berries!

I love this time of year ... the berries are turning red on various trees, the leaves are changing to vibrant autumn shades, the air is cooler, the pumpkins are ripening ...


I just *love* it!!

We have over a dozen of these olive trees on our property ... the berries really brighten them up and they are SO pretty!

This is a big thorny bush that is in our backyard. I have no idea what kind of bush it is. In the spring it has really pretty pink flowers on it.

This is one of our two barberry bushes. This is a very thorny bush and the leaves eventually change to a bright orange color.

We have over 20 holly trees on our property ... they are just so pretty to me! Here the berries haven't changed to red yet.

This is a nandina ... this is probably one of my favorite plants that I've discovered since living in Virginia. Once the berries turn bright red, they are just soooo pretty!!

And ... it's been awhile since I shared a "Griffin on the Tractor" picture ... so here you go!

All of your berries and bushed are so pretty. You know how jealous I am that you have FALL and I don't. Love the "G" tractor photo. He is such a boy. And I really like your new blog layout, everything shows up now on my work computer. In the past all I got was your blog and nothing else.

Thanks for sharing your Fall with us. Maybe we will have some in about a month. I love it when the leaves start changing color but the bad part is they fall off then I have to rake. Oh well... it's good exercise.

from what I read I have the impression you havn't met a red berry yet that you didn't find beautiful----(lol), and the "Grif" looks good on the big machine.

I was trying to add a picture to my "follower" profile and ended up deleting myself...but I've got it back now and I have the picture I wanted.

Yum yum. You could make a mean crumble wtih them. Unless they're poisonous. Are they poisonous?
