I'm still working decorating with the orange colors. I don't know but as soon as the spooky holiday is over all the beautiful fall decorations are piled in a cart and ready to get rid of. Seems our wonderful Thanksgiving holiday is getting skipped over more and more.
I want this holiday to stretch out for a long time. I'm not ready for Red and Green yet , I still want orange, corn stalks, mums and pumpkins.
I also like to take the long country roads home and drive slow and see if I can find an ol fence loaded with bittersweet. Love to take clippings. Haven't done that for a long time sense there's bittersweet growing in the woods over at our other homestead.
Heres a pic of some I gather a couple of Autumns ago for decorations
The berries are reddish orange and then when cut they open to a beautiful bright orange very pretty.
I had heard somewhere that you can drink a tea made form them but also heard they are poisonous, so I'll just use as a decoration for now.
Heres some other pictures and also a link for some info on the plant. I haven't thoroughly read all the link so it might have some info on making a tea from the plant or some medical uses.
So do you have this growing on your homestead? Are you like me and want the Fall colors to stay around longer : )
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by the camp.
