November Light (Gone now, but we remember)
Keen gardeners may recognize the beautyberry bush, callicarpa, above -- the purple berries are just what's needed in a November garden, don't you think?
And I'm still as much in love with Arbutus uneda (strawberry tree) as when I first inquired, 8 or so years ago, about what that tree was that managed to fruit and flower all at the same time, at a time of year when most other plants were giving up. . . what's not to love about reddening berries mixed with delicate white flowers and shiny evergreen leaves?!
