Mother Nature’s pre-Thanksgiving table is set.  Ripe Spicebush Berries sing out in red waiting to provide a delicious, and highly nutritious  meal to the animals who will be staying throughout the winter.  Photograph taken on Saturday November 5th, 2016 in the Shawnee National Forest.

A wonderful native shrub whose red berries add a much-needed color  boost to the woods during the late Autumn and Winter.
