The Garlanded Berries of Autumnal Black Bryony

Since a young child enchanted by the Flower Fairies books, Black Bryony has been one of my favourite wayside flowers. Or, more correctly, one of my favourite autumn berries. Pretty. But do not touch, for these berries are poisonous.

Black Bryony berries hung all in a row, like Christmas trimmings, their wizened leaves so much resembling the seats of a ski-lift. Photo 10 Sept 2018

Not the photo I had earmarked for the #2018picoftheweek challenge title: Repetition, but nature wins out over manufactured features every time.

    I love how they grow so evenly spaced… the better to entice unknowing peeps to touch, I bet!
    Lovely image, Crispina.

  2. I love it when a prompt has a mind of its own. And yeah, I won’t eat ANY berries in the wild just in case they’re poisonous.

    I’ll never look at Bryony the same way again. What a fun entry for Repetition. I never saw them as ski lifts, but now that you said it, I can’t unsee it. 🙂
