All we took were pictures


Today was a wonderful sunny autumn day and even though we had to study a lot, we felt the urge to go outside and into the wood. The floor was covered with many different mushrooms and we also saw some beautiful berries. But we are quite sure that they are inedible, so all we took were pictures. 

The beautiful glossy black berries we saw are uneatable but not unusable. They are the fruits of a plant called Ligustrum vulgare which many may know from privat garden hedges. Once the berries were used to dye wool into an rich blue. We might try it out some time...
