Yummy, great in a smoothie.

Just as well the Fatsia japonica is only a “false” castor oil plant! If it was a real one, it would have pods that contained ricin, so one smoothie would mean curtains for anyone who drank it D:
Oh right. On reflection I’d better throw away those mushrooms I picked in the woods this morning as well 🙂
Very rich, but not for eating!
A very yummy closeup, Sarah. 🙂
They might match blueberries in colour, but I wouldn’t suggest eating them, Sylvia. A definite promoter of tummy ache, I think.
Oh dear! 😦
What a sneak nature is; these look good enough to devour! Lovely picture, Sarah.
I often wonder how many early hunters and gatherers died as a result of experimenting with different foods, colourful berries and fungi in particular. Or maybe they had a natural instinct for discerning how edible or poisonous something was, like most wild animals do (an instinct lost to many domestic animals).
a beautiful closeup and I want to pick one!
I haven’t tried picking one. They look quite strongly attached to their stems and the birds aren’t interested in them, so I guess they’re going to stay there for purely decorative purpose. The winter cream-coloured winter flowers that come before them are rather fun to look at during the bleak months. You can see a clump of them here (bottom left), although the bush wasn’t so mature and the photograph rather blurry, as I didn’t have such a good camera in those days. https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2012/12/29/winter-haiku-1/
they are lovely and I love the flower post too!
Thank you. Glad you liked the post 🙂
Beautiful and deadly then Sarah!
They’re certainly not on my dinner menu, Andrea! Not even the birds want to eat them.
