“Red Berry Filler”

“Red Berry Filler”

“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”
― Samuel Butler

I’m not really sure what kind of berry this is. They look a bit like cranberries, but I suspect that is not the case. They came as a colour ‘filler’ in a bouquet of flowers I purchased for our Thanksgiving table. Of course, I had to pull it apart and make photos of the various blossoms, some of which have already been shared here.

In any case, I thought they were interesting and liked the way the light played off the berries themselves. If anyone has an idea what they might be, I’d be happy to be informed.

  1. When I lived in Taiwan for a couple of years some time ago, I took a flower arranging course for fun. I remember these berries. They were called huo long guo (fire dragon fruit) but I have no idea of the English name! Not exactly helpful but maybe of interest! 🙂
