This was such a pretty, fall photograph overlooking the salt marsh. I love the Bittersweet berries in their bright red to orange to yellow colors.
“The berries on this plant were called bittersweet by colonists for their resemblance to nightshade berries. They are usually dark to light orange in color, but can sometimes be yellow or almost red. American bittersweet berries are important late-winter food sources for birds, who then “plant” the seeds for more vines.”
My mom used to pick these Bittersweet vines and then wind them into a wreath for the fall. It was always so festive. Fun memories…
One thought on “It’s Looking Like Fall Over The Salt Marsh On Cape Cod.”
What a beautiful contrast with the marsh and the sky!
