Autumn by Giuseppe Arcimboldo 1527 - 1593 - renown for painting portraits with elements consisting entirely of fruit - courtesy of Wikipedia
The pictures below represent just seven of the different types of berries found in my back garden an hour ago.
|Yew tree fruit (which turns into an aril)|
I was minded to a conversation I had a week or so ago with a colleague at work about summer and when it starts and finishes.
|Rowan berries - the leaves turn a gorgeous fiery orange in late autumn|
|Pyracantha (orange coloured pomes) - the birds favourite, also found in red and yellows|
|Hypericum (St John's Wort) fruit, this bush developed from seed dropped by a bird!|
|Cotoneaster, another bird seeded bush - related to the Pyracantha but without thorns!|
|Varigated Holly (Ilex) berries|
As a colleague and friend is keen on reminding me, only 88 days to Christmas!
