Wild fruit photos

All those native perennial plants with great fruit for the birds of which I have written? I have to show some pictures. The selection is by no means exhaustive: trilliums and twisted stalks, blue cohosh and mayflower, starry false Solomon’s seal and bunch berry, and many others are not shown. Spikenard and poke and other star players are featured…
