    1. 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).


    1. 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/
