Nature’s Art #41.

Hello to all of you on this brilliantly sunny April morning!  But it is still so cool out there, it really doesn’t feel like it is April 21.  But the sun is shining, the birds are busy singing and chirping all kinds of different songs and probably just a lot of talking among themselves.  The chipmunks are coming for their morning peanuts.  The squirrel, that I have named Woody, comes and chases the chipmunks away so he can eat a few peanuts, then he carries one off with him and the chipmunks come right back again.  But the chipmunks know how to do it, they haul 3 peanuts at a time, the squirrel only one peanut.  But the little chipmunks have that built in ability with their big cheeks, something the squirrels don’t have.  However, the squirrels don’t complain about it, they just use what they have and enjoy it.  I think there’s a lesson there for us people.  If we could learn that we would be a lot happier.

And not for some more summer pics for our art in nature series…


And here we have some nice white berries from the baneberry plant.  This plant, all parts of it, are highly poisonous, avoid it completely.  It is sometimes called doll’s eyes.  Consuming just 6 berries can kill.  Birds however, can eat these berries without any side effects whatever.IMG_7209

And here we have the wild lily-of-the-valley berries which are really quite different than most berries being spotted, though later turning a light red as one berry already has done.  Another plant to avoid eating, it can be deadly toxic to people.

Well, there we have two different berries, both are very interesting and add to the art that can be found in nature.  But not all that looks nice or interesting is good, as these two plants show.  Please do not eat the berries or any part of these plants.  Perhaps instead of art this time, we should call it oddities in nature.  Take care everyone, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Hi Sheree, are your comments on your blog showing up in your notification sidebar on your stats page the way the should? Mine have stopped working so I always have to go directly to my comments page to see if there are any comments. Kind of annoying, I never know if a comment has come in or not.

    • Yes, I hope our parks will be open for the summer this year. Fortunately my walking path is still open. I didn’t know we had such poisonous berries around here. Definitely need to be careful with something unknown. Have a great day!
