Today's Flowers: Berries in the Quiet of Roxbury on Veterans' Day

tierney_preserve

Hiking with my daughter in the Brian Tierney Preserve in Roxbury on Veterans' Day, we noticed how noisy the walk seemed at the higher altitudes where the path was covered with newly fallen, crisp oak leaves and how quiet it was along the water, where the leaves had been walked into small pieces and silence. Along the quiet part of the trail, we came across these berries where a hedge had once demarcated the end of someone's farm.

  8. What a lovely composition! And the berries' standing quietly as guardians of the boundary is very inspiring to me too.

  10. Beautiful. Sounds like you had a great walk. Beautiful photograph.

    I just had to check. The Brian Tierney Preserve has a geocache that hasn't been found since April.

  21. Beautiful composition of the fall red berries! We have an evergreen shrub that grows wild here called Toyon. It has bright red berries that start appearing in November and December, just in time for Christmas.

  28. Hi, Sandy
    Yes, nice shot! Do you know what type of plant that is, with the red berries. I recently posted a photo taken a week ago of what I think may be the same plant. My best guess was The Autumn Olive, or Elaeagnus umbellata.
