Walking home from the health food store I came across this beautiful bush of berries. I immediately thought it was elderberries but then looked it up when I got home and realized they weren't. The berries are a beautiful purple and are strong to the touch. They hang in a beautiful cluster and I was so tempted to pick it but decided it was best to leave it.
Ever since I took classes with Robin Rose Bennett at the Open Center, I have looked at trees, shrubs, weeds, leaves, flowers and all plant life with a different eye. I am amazed as the variety of plant life that exists all around us, even in the city!
So if you can help me identify this beautiful berry I would be grateful..
