Today's Flowers #113 Seeds and berries

Pyracantha berries - these will be eagerly consumed by blackbirds later on
Ripening holly berries on Ilex 'Golden King'
Blackbirds and thrushes will enjoy these. Sometimes a pair of Mistle thrushes will appropriate the tree and keep all-comers at bay!

  1. The birds here have been waiting patiently to eat my mother's orchid buds, much to her aggravation. I wish these birds would confine themselves to berries and nuts, too.

  2. Wonderful closeups!
    I think that last one has the makings of a lovely Christmas postcard. :)

  3. Gorgeous! I love the holly especially, haven't seen some in ages. :)

  4. I love the pyracantha berries and holly! L

  5. Gorgeous and colorful berries. The birds must be happy there.

  6. I love the close-up of the developing sunflower seeds--I've never seen them close up before. Great shots of fall seeds, berries and leaves.

  7. Wonderful pattern of the sunflower heart. Lovely shots all together!

  8. Holly berries! When I was a toddler, I loved the two huge holly trees in front of my grandparents' house in New Westminster, BC. Someone was always having to grab me away from the prickly leaves.

  9. Beautiful photos Janice, they certainly show the change in season.
