Walking around a nature hiking trail at the local state park in Penfield with another Bubbler friend last week, I saw these gorgeous deep purple berries. If you know what they are, please let me know.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    I think they are elderberries – you can make wine out of them – they are pretty sour to eat though

  • I’m familiar with the wine!!! I think you’re right! Thanks!

    indeed they are elderberries – my Mom used to make “fritters” from the blossoms and also wine – if nothing else the birds love em — really nice photo – dave

  • Thank you David, I think the birds get a little whooped from these don’t they?
