Fall Berries

Most of November is dark browns and greys, but here are there are still flashes of colour like these berry-bearing shrubs.

This is barberry, a thorny shrub about 3-4 feet high and 5-6 feet across, with both berries and small leaves that turn bright red or orange. It flashes its colour from a fencerow, the brightest spot around.

These two photos are highbush cranberry, with leaves that remind you of maple leaves. Both the leaves and the berries turn bright red, though the picture was taken a couple of weeks ago.
