Yew berry spiral

Miss P. My dodgy right hand still can't make things with pens, scissors or paper, so instead here is some bright red berry art just for 'Yew', hope you had a great day, love...Cally xxx

The sun is so low already that the piece was in the shade but I held a few berries in my hand so you could see how they glow whenthe sunlight shines through them. Warning, yew berries are poisonous, do not eat (though I believe Yew trees are being used in cancer treatment).

They are beautiful aren't they? Beautiful but deadly.

Not quite sure how I got here, but since I am passing I thought I would say hello from another Scottish Cally. I love your spiralling berries.

As far as I know, you may eat the beautiful fruity red outside. Only the seed inside is poison.
I remember, on my wedding-day, a friend (who is a gardener) wanted to prove me, that it's possible and ate loads....But don't ask me like they taste..I didn't dare trying ;)

Cally, your photos are super!
