The Little Red Fall Fruit

September 12, 2017

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
Took my 4-year old daughter–Metta Mae–for a walk last night. Found some autumnberries (Elaeagnus umbellata). I said, “They might be a little bitter right now & need more time to ripen.” Metta says, “I think they’re sweet; I love them.” She scarfed ’em down faster than a rainbow sprinkled dunkin donut.

May the forest be with you,
