Those berries look outrageous! Are they really that purple?

I'm just as amazed this year as I was last year. I can hardly believe they exist. (Sort of like autumn in Florida.)

always gorgeous.

Those really are beautiful and a great colour too. Hope you're feeling better. BTW, I think you're brave to have a pink kitchen. I guess if you;re bored of the cabinets you could always paint them a chocolate brown. I like the way brown and pink go together.

Godt billede.
Jeg kender ikke disse bær, men en smuk farve, ja det har de.
Tak for kigget.

So beautiful! We are truly surrounded by God's works of wonder. We just need to open our eyes to see it.

You have an amazing eye and I love looking "through the lens" of your camera. :)

I've been browsing through your blog in these early morning hours - getting to know you a bit more. Don't you just LOVE those beauty berries? They grow wild in the thickets along the creek and in the woods near us. My husband transplanted some in our yard and I just love their delicate flowers and truly beautiful berries.

As a fellow Floridan, and chronic illness sufferer (which is why I am online in the wee hours of the morning when pain keeps me from sleeping), I feel an even greater closeness to you, Leslie. May the joy of the Lord be our strength in 2012!
