  4. A lovely Christmas card!

    What a beautiful sight at this time of year

    I do love berries, but there aren’t any frosted ones here — not yet, at least. On Thursday temperatures will be dropping 30-50 degrees in 8-12 hours, depending on how warm it gets ahead of the front. Our noses will be the color of your berries!

  7. Very pretty. Merry Christmas.

    Well captured! Perfect berries for the birds.

  9. Very pretty. The birds have almost picked mine clean.

      Thank you, Judy. Same here, every year they seem to come earlier and earlier. I’ve given up having berries in arrangements. Even in wreaths they’ll pluck them out!

  10. Very pretty! Winter cold and up close…

  11. Ready for Christmas. Are you expecting a white one? Believe it or not, they are teasing us with snow here on the Gulf Coast.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Wow, snow there? That’d be a rare treat. We already have had 2 storms, so it does look like we’ll have a white Christmas this year. Another storm coming through Thurs/Fri., so Santa’s sleigh won’t have a problem getting through. 🙂

    Frosting always makes things prettier! Ready for the feast!

  13. Frosted berries are one of my favorite winter scenes.

  14. They appear as though dusted in sugar. Pretty and bright!

    Wonderful image, Eliza.

  17. Debbie says:

    These look delicious — icy cold berries (with a tiny sprinkling of sugar) are superb!!

    Lovely colors, looks like winterberry, and I see from your tags that’s is indeed what it is.

  19. arlingwoman says:

    Those berries put a smile on my face! Nice capture.

  20. Lovely but I can’t imagine how cold it must be. We were in the mid-high 50s today (up a little) and I’ve been shivering all day.

    FYI, the bird I identified by default as an immature house finch has been identified as a spice finch or nutmeg mannikin by another commentator and I think he/she is correct. It’s native to Asia but the Audubon Society added it to California’s state list in 2013 or thereabout.

      Ah, there it is! I knew there was something a bit exotic about it. Thanks for letting me know.
      It takes 2 weeks to acclimate to cold (blood corpuscles shrink away from epidermis), so when it gets cold fast, you feel it. Of course I wear down in winter, but today was low 30s and I thought it was just about perfect! 😀

  21. Such seasonal beauty. Whenever I see robin eats frosted berries, I’m reminded that Alaska has the highest per-capita ice cream consumption in the country. Frigid temperatures don’t preclude a preference for frozen foods. 😊

  22. This is closely related to the possumhaw we have in Texas. With the temperature about to drop well below freezing here on Friday, we may see a similar sight.

  23. This is a beautiful wintry close-up … great work!

  24. Add some ice cream and you’ve got a nice winterberry sundae. 🙂
