  9. So beautiful …. Is that a very tall Rudbeckia in the first photo? Mine are all low growing; I'd love some tall ones for cutting. Also, what is that strange berry? And are the prickles soft so the fruit is easy to get at? (Sorry, so many questions!)

    1. It's a perennial rudbeckia deamii, Cari which it says grows to 60 cm but ours is over a metre tall so I am not sure what has happened.

    2. Forgot to mention the berry is a Japanese wineberry. The canes have vicious thorns but in the photos what you see are sticky airs like on a sundew. The berries are tiny and so far we haven't picked enough at one time to determine the taste. They have acted more like a garnish on fruit salads. Ask as many questuins as you like Caro :-)

  10. I love the changing seasons - there is always something new to see. What is the plant in that last photo? Looks like some sort of berry, but I've never seen anything quite like it.
