Berries Galore

 On the motionless branches of some trees, autumn berries hung like clusters of coral beads, as in those fabled orchards where the fruits were jewels. ~ Charles Dickens

I’ve noticed so many acorns this fall, perhaps it’s a ‘mast’ year for oaks…every 7 years or so, they drop many more acorns than normal to ensure survival. And, it seems the berries are having bigger yields than normal too, or maybe I’m just noticing them more than other years?

What have you noticed lately?

    We are noticing more seeds dropping from our Ash tree than ever. it’s a neighborhood conversation…. I didn’t know about mast years. and I did not know about the 7 year cycle. The sacred seven…
