Partridge Berry Berry - Mitchella repens by 


Partridge Berry is a native, low-growing, perennial vine that thrives on the forest floor. It loves rich soil and shade, and blooms spring to summer depending on it’s location. The evergreen leaves are small and tough, and after the flowers are gone, the vine sports bright red berries that birds eat and then disperse the seeds. The range for this small but lovely wildflower is throughout the eastern half of North America, and it is common – not endangered.

This picture was taken November 15, 2011, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
