ABC Wednesday: B is for brevipedunculata


I have been meaning to give ABC Wednesday a whirl for years and I finally made it in almost on time. I will be starting a week late for Round 7 but I am able to combine A and B with the Ampelopsis brevipedunculata berries below. The common name is porcelain berry.

Wow they're gorgeous. Daryl and I think alike... can you eat them? They look a bit like blueberries.

What a huge word for such tiny berries.

Such beautiful colors and light...The berries look wonderful, especially with the water drops on them.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. The berries are edible but bland according to what I've read. I haven't tried them but the birds love them.

The two colors go so beautifully together! Who would have thought that nature could do that all on its own?

Rinkly Rimes said...

What beautiful blushing ball-shaped berries! Bonza!

Wanda said...

Looks a little like a blueberry.

Several Artist on my Art Blog had been giving their rendition of a photograph of blueberries.

Your photo is lovely.

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful berries, and such Brilliant colours.

Ann said...

I was never good in spelling, and I was never selected to the spelling bee.

I can't even pronounce your two words.
I just call them berries?

caite said...

what a fantastic color.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Wow Carver! Those blueberries are great. We have a few bushes and they are great to have in the yard. They are pretty and they are edible!

Glad you're doing ABC Wed. Plus, you landed the FIRST spot!

Paula said...

Lovely berries, first time see that, are they edible?

Siromade said...

I like the color and looks nice to eat, like berries.

Wendy said...

How beautiful the berry is which is perfect for "B" thank you :)

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

They are lovely, but seems they are a vigorous ornamental invader. I suppose they are not poisonous since birds and animals help them to spread but don't seem necessarily to be edible either, but as long as they won't give me a rash I wouldn't mind seeing these along my fence... the berries are really pretty.

Naquillity said...

the berries look delicious. i'll pass on trying to say those two words really fast though. hope you had a great day.

Troy -- ABC Wednesday Team said...

Great, But can you say:

"Adolphous Bartholomew Ate Basically A Bushel of Ampelopsis brevipedunculata At Bedtime All By Himself"

Ten times really fast?

That's OK, neither can I!

It's great to see you join us this round. Your picture is wonderful, I can't wait to go research them and learn more about such Beautiful Berries.

Hope to see you next week
