Autumn Bushes in Bloom

Every Saturday morning from 10 to 12 I sing in a choir for elderly people in this building behind these bushes. I always have my camera with me. When I left the building I saw these bushes in bloom. I was surprised because it's autumn, a season with mushrooms, toadstools and berries. But, no there were clearly flowers and next to the yellow flowering bushes, were the bushes with dark purple berries.I took photos of all the bushes. The purple berry is called Callicarpa.

Oh my! Those are gorgeous berries. What an awesome colour. The yellow flower looks familiar but cannot think of its name.

Haha, I only find butterflies when I am in the mountains, far away from the city! :)

The clusters of the purple berries are such a lovely purple. Are they eatable?

Whatever their name could be, they are beautiful and I love your macro shots of the berries.

Enjoy your week!

That purple seems out of place in nature. :)
I'm glad you found them and shared them with us.

These are pretty berries, Wil.

I don't think I have ever seen berries that paler shade of purple! They are so beautiful!

I have seen the yellow flower (or similar) in Australia, but have no idea of the name! Our variety seems to flower twice a year ~ Spring and Autumn! Quite odd!

I love those purple berries, wow. Do the birds like them?
I like your new leader shot, too. Is that a lily?
I always enjoy flower photos, so colorful.
