Purple Berries

Not very fall-like, but I captured these berries not too long ago. I was totally drawn to the vivid purple color.

Purple Berries

Purple and green is one of my favorite color combinations, and always reminds me of a bathing suit I bought in my early teens. A one piece, with purple and green diagonal stripes, purchased from the Spiegel Catalog through the mail - one of the first mail order purchases for me. I remember feeling quite out of my comfort zone with that color combination - perhaps it was a departure from the style of that time. But so I digress.

The trees here have reached their peak and I need to get out there with my camera before it's all gone!

Edited to add: The plant photographed is a Callicarpa or Beautyberry, a shrub found mainly in the South.

It really is one of my fav colors also. Just beautiful.

It is a great color combination. I remember shopping in a Spiegel store as a child.

Amazing color -- one you don't see often in Autumn.
