Seeing Red

Set of six. These berries vary. What are your observations of similarity and difference? Here are six of mine: Close and far, horizon, other colors, leaves, husks, clarity.

    I would just say that it’s fun to see six different views of the same subject. And I’m thinking this is the “tree” or is it a shrub? – I was asking about in another set – the six trees set. Do you know what it is?

    • I’m afraid I don’t know. It is growing more like a shrub, but since it’s near the base of several trees and under their canopy it may be that it would grow less spindly if it were in the open? The berries were fairly small, but larger than red huckleberries, and I agree they’re reminiscent of rose hips. Perhaps the size of small grapes. I’ll make note to take an image to share of the whole plant next time I’m out for a walk along the river trail by my house. It’s nearby, so we can watch it over the season changes as well. It will be fun to have ongoing posts until we can identify it…or someone shares their knowledge on it with us.

        Funny, I just saw another red-berried shrub I don’t know yesterday, on a Deception Pass trail. You’d have to assume the berries aren’t good, or they’d be long gone, right? 😉 I joined the Washington Native Plant Society, hoping for informative field trips, but up here, the person who leads them wasn’t able to this year. Maybe in the spring. Meanwhile, maybe one of us will get lucky….and good idea to keep an eye on that one!
