Berry Bush Bonanza

 With all of the rain this spring, our berry bushes are bursting!  Each year we add more berry bushes around the ranch hoping to attract more birds.  Different species of shrubs provide berries for the birds throughout the seasons.  Here is a sampling of our berries as we move into the month of August.

Canada Cherry (not yet ripe)-

Currants- different varieties with

       different colored berries.

 Red-osier Dogwood- a personal                         
                       favorite of mine (and the birds).

Scarlet Elder- beautiful red berries

                                                                         that the birds never touch.

Honeysuckle- At least two different varieties- orange and red berries.                 

Raspberries- just planted last year.

     and devoured by the most species
     of birds on the ranch.
