Gorgeous photos, Vicki. I really liked the one of the berries, some of which are striped. Do you know what kind of berries they are?

It's SO beautiful where you live!

Arlee Bird said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I do so love coming here every morning and seeing your pictures and reading your words.

Like Victoria, I'm wondering what those berries are. We have them all over this year.

Vicki Lane said...

Victoria and KarenB -- those are poke berries. Not edible for humans but birds love them.

I went back and identified thing on the post.

Howdy, Arlee Bird -- you're a long way from home!

Autumn is just wonderful. It really pays to look closely at every leave and every flower.

NCmountainwoman said...

Oh yes it's acomin' and not a minute too soon for me. From the looks of your sidebar you are going to have a good opportunity to see a lot leaves this fall.

Vicki,

Enjoyed his posting. Really liked the Pipevine Swallowtail photo on lobelia. We have the same lobelia blooming but I have not seen butterflies on it.

Brenda said...

Beautiful photos of this wonderful time of year.

Elora said...

Yes, indeed! We're heading home!
The garden's almost clean; the basement is full of canned fruits and veggies; life is good! Lovely photos!

I'm thinking of dying some cloth with some of my pokeweed. They are prolific this year!

Lovely pictures. The one of the sun filtering into the woods is especially nice.
