For Kathryn

Kathryn (aka Collage Diva) has inspired me today with her deliciously juicy berry photos.
I discovered a bush I'd never seen before down my driveway a few autumns back---almost chartreuse leaves with clusters of the most delightfully purple berries. I looked it up and found that it is called Purple Beautyberry

I promised Kathryn pictures of it earlier today, but couldn't find the ones the Canadian had taken for me once before. I went out and shot some with my iphone, but they were pitiful.
All the leaves have fallen off and I'm not the best photographer.
Bless his heart, the Canadian came home from a long day, dead tired, went out and shot new ones for me.

So here you go Kathryn, just for you---

Those photos are stunning! I'm so inspired to create something from those photos!

I have some of these great berries too! I never knew the name. Thanks. I love your photos of them. Just wonderful.

These are spectacular! Please tell your sweetie that I really appreciate that he shot the new photos. I'm so impressed with how they came out. I don't have a phone camera -- I didn't realize you could get such vivid color! I have never seen these berries -- Yowza!

I posted a link to this post from my berry post.

Many thanks dear one and have a lovely and creative day!

xoxo k

I have two of these bushes planted outside my bedroom window. The berries last wonderfully cut too. I fell in love with this plant years ago and when I found some to put in the yard, had to have them.

Have a great week.
