I love the backdrop in this photo Amy. Is it across your drive/path? Its a view of your garden I don't recognise, but its lovely!

I agree Karen....some really mature trees.

I've noticed that the white pines are covered with cones..and the spruce too... the mountain ash have oodles of berries and the Dogwoods ...etc. etc. all the fall bearing trees and plants are heavy with progeny... was it the mild winter we had?

Hi, Amy, I thought the same as Bloomer on seeing the photo! ? But looking at it a 2nd time it's nothing like a Raspberry at all - other than in the colour & the way the fruit is built up! The leaves are also totally different from Raspberry leaves as is the manner in which the fruit is borne!

It's quite a curious plant!

My little trees are starting to mature now Amy, and it really is lovely to see them growing. So I understand what you mean.

Such an unusual plant. I seem to remember you posting some pics last year. Your garden seems to be home to quite a few unusual plants.

I love the Autumn colours Chris but not what is coming after it Brrr .... It's a good feeling isn't it Karen when you start a plan and then see the results , Yes this is one of my favourites at this time of the year Waddy it has two eye catching impacts first the Bracts early in the year which are amazing and then these lovely berries in the autumn ..

It is a lovely small tree, I wonder why they are not seen more often.
