“A Beauty”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
There are signs that summer is slowly coming to an end. We are not having daytime temperatures in the high 90’s, the sun is setting a few minutes earlier, and the lowering angle of the sun is already noticeable. I’ve also noticed that other bloggers are starting to post pictures of beauty berries. Beauty berry bushes (Callicarpa americana) display gorgeous magenta berries in late summer. The berries on my bushes have almost completed the color change.
Besides the color, I like the way the berries tightly pack around the stems.
This is just one more sign that fall isn’t too far away.
