Nitid nightshade

I've featured these Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) berries on the blog before (once last October when they were covered in ice by our first frost). I like the way that the berries mature at different rates, giving these lovely clusters of autumnal colour. They seem almost luminous with the sun shining through them.

I so enjoy seeing what you and others are focusing in on - I've never really seen the berries that way before - admit that I use their red colour as a flag that it's time to yank them. Quite jewel-like in the sunlight.
