Bittersweet manip. It's dark but I like it....
I have to get myself one of these bushes! I love when the berry case splits open like that & you have the orange & the red.
They are really nice but the thick lush ones are considered to be an invasive species. They look great in large drapey clusters but in some areas, they cover everything!
But oh so beautiful in a winter garden!
That's true... They are hard to stop from spreading though...
Perhaps its the colder climate here, but anywhere I've seen them, they appear to be well under control. I have a spot that would be self-limiting either way.
I looked it up once, and there are two kinds, one native the other not. The native one is a little spindly in comparison, with smaller berries. It's the invader that goes wild and looks so lush. Maybe you don't have too many of them yet.
I only want one... and another invasive shrub/tree - staghorn sumac. They can't be any worse than the palnt I'm currently trying to exterminate. I haven't been able to identify it, but it has a tap root - when its chopped into pieces, it STILL grows new plants! GRRRRRRR
and I like it too along with the rest of your works. And I ty so much for the favs!
it's very nice & so are the colors
Fine work, Barbara!
Thank you for the compliment and the fave! Working with pictures is as much fun as taking them!
what can i say, beautiful, great piece of work ...
