Well, thanks, Jilly and Tig I must say when I noticed the Hypericum berries I was quite surprised - it's one of those shrubs that has a bit of an image problem, it gets taken for granted through being associated with municipal planting for years (in my head anyway) but actually that little plant , which self seeded itself years ago by my back door is really reliable, very pretty - like Alchemilla, when wet - and has the most beautiful coloured berries. Mind you, why the heck haven't I got a Callicarpa? Those purple berries are stunning! What an amazing colour at this time of year.....
Lovely Scarecrow. The birds have already cleaned out most of the berries on my hollies. Usually it's well into winter before they start going after them, and I can't say this has been a bad summer for berries, so i don't know why they started after them so early this year. Saying that, they have already cleaned out all the berries on my chokecherries, elder and burning bushes as well.
Praise for the singing. Praise for the morning. Praise for them springing fresh from the world
I searched Tig, but this was all I could come up with. Not a very good show this year for some reason. The Pyracanthus berries have all dropped of the top half without even changing colour i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/GWDAdmin1/Smilies/Default/sad.gif . The berries on this Cotoneaster are OK but the folliage is terrible after all the blackfly this year.

I love to see the berries on the Rowan trees, thanks for posting Chuckles.Are they creamy berries on the right side? On my way to my GP there is one that has pinkish/red berries, in a few weeks I'll get a pic.
They do look a creamy colour Ladygardener but they get more yellow as they mature, the red ones actually look more orange atm but get redder as they mature. I'm sure there seem to be more berries than usual on both trees, I've looked at the trees next door as well and they look as if they have more on too.

Wow isabella simply stunning every year I see your Callicarpa & every year I say I must get one for next year, luckily I have managed to remember so far that I've got no room at all for it to grow it such a wonderful specimen, so I'll just admire yours.
One from me, I've got a wild Rose growing in the hedge at the front, sometimes the flowers get overlooked but the hips always look good, helped by a borrowed background of the Elm that grows just to the left of my house. I suppose it can be forgiven for turning what should be a sunny south facing garden into dry shade for most of the year
