What are these???!!?11/20

On my walk yesterday morning I came across one beautiful PURPLE bushel of what ever these berries are!!

I was beyond happy because purple is my absolute favorite color and I have never seen a purple berry before!! ( I mean maybe in Willy Wonka’s world)

The berries actually matched the coat I was wearing too!!

And then Friday when I was out to lunch with Clay (5yrs old) I decided to get pancakes for a change. I never get pancakes but it just sounded so perfect.

Well when I flipped the top cake over to melt the butter properly… this little guy was smiling right at me!!

What a life ! How fun!

  3. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I looked up Callicarpa bodinieriย โ€šProfusionโ€˜ which was suggested by user picpholio in the comment above, and I found that it is called Liebesperlenstrauch in German . This would translate as โ€žLove beads bushโ€œ .
    โ€žLiebesperlenโ€œ (love beads) is the German word for very small, little candy balls in various colors – it is a candy. It is not the same as the english love beads necklace.

  4. American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) A very unusual native with those bright berries. They are more common down South where winter is milder. I have one that never gets very big because it dies to the ground every winter. The blue birds usually come in mid-winter to eat the berries. ๐Ÿ™‚
