Sunday Picture Post: Black Bryony’s Traffic Lights Berries

While it’s true that Black Bryony’s berries are red, they pass through several colours on their way.

I was late in finding them this year; I almost missed the lights.

    • Of all the autumn berries, these will have me hiking miles just for a decent photo. I note where they are in the summer, while walking. And then return. This year has been brilliant, a difficult choice of which photo to use.

  2. Thank you for posting this. I’ve been trying to remember the name of this stuff. Husband scythed a load of it up last year by accident and brought it up to the house to be identified and I’d forgotten the name. It’s a protected species too…

    Those pretty, poisonous berries look like they have mean spikes or is that what they’re climbing on.
    I can see why you’d want pictures. They shine an invitation 🙂

    Gorgeous colors! Like Dale said, little brilliant jewels. How interesting that they go through the colors of the stop light — green, yellow, red. Makes me wonder if that’s a rare coincidence, or whether the stop light is copying some common natural process.
