Header Challenge

As some of you know I have decided to join the Header Challenge with http://thefishingguy.blogspot.com and his posse. The topic of photo changes from week to week. This weeks challenge was a photo of berries. I was thinking that Dogwood Trees have berries. I have now learned that the flowering Dogwood Tree cornus florida actually has fruit not berries. The birds love them and they last throughout winter. Fun fact: The Flowering Dogwood Tree is the North Carolina State Flower. This photo was taken last evening after a rain shower. I do hope that this does not disqualify me as it's really a fruit and not a berry.

Superb.. those tiny droplets of water really make the shot... If I had given it more thought I would have said fruit,seeds or berries... I am now looking forward to next weeks.

It's an excellent capture, and so far my favorite. But.... it's not a berry, though it seems none of the competitors care about that. One more to look at.

Neat challenge. I'm going over to check it out! :-)

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

What a great picture! I was wondering if my Dogwood was going to have fruit this year, but haven't seen any. I bet the birds love them!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I'm confused, but don't have time to read your comments to see if anyone thought of this, but a berry is a kind of fruit, isn't it? Not all fruits are berries, but berries are fruit. So, what is the difference? Those look like berries, lovely ones, to me!

I like all you blooms for Friday, too!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Oh, now, I'm realizing this wasn't the first of the challenges. So, this was the photo you won on. Well, it was a great one! What were the first 2 challenges?
