Berries

I don't know why these appeal to me so much visually. They are the dreaded Poke weed berries but they just look so pretty with the frozen lilac bush. We try to get rid of them all the time but they aren't hearty berries for no reason. Apparently, they are eaten by birds as a last resource to starving. They cause really bad stomach cramps and diarrhea in humans. Once, the berry of the Poke weed was used as dye by Ancient peoples.

That's a nice picture. I can never get a grab like that because in Georgia we never get snow -.-"
