Such beautiful photos. I love the way plants look with water droplets on them. And that second photo - the water looks like glass.

The fruit looks a lot like a kiwi. I wonder what it tastes like!

Lovely photos. Would never know to eat something like that little green berry.

I love the second photo! So serene! And the branches of the trees are such wonderful shapes.
Thanks for sharing!

I love hearing the enthnobotanical details of plants. I like trying whatever is edible and medicinal here in the Western part of North America. Beautiful Photo of your creek too.

Great shot. I never would've guessed it was a trail if you hadn't said so though. Looks like you got quite a bit of rain!

Even flooded it looks inviting! Lovely photo of the flower/fruit, too, and I enjoyed all the info to go with it.
