Unidentified Colorful Berries on a Vine

Saturday afternoon.

These colorful (but unidentifed) berries on a vine caught my eye! Highland Park, Pittsburgh.

The colors looked unreal.

*update 8:45 AM Sunday  

Blog Reader L has sent Plant ID  “The plant is ampelopsis.”

*update 9:04 from blog reader L

“Porcelain-berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata) was originally brought to the United States around the 1870’s as a landscape plant. Porcelain-berry is now recognized as an invasive plant, which can quickly overwhelm and displace native plants.Sep 7, 2006”

thanks for the info L

Woodpecker in Highland Park Tree Stump

We were walking across the street to the playground and saw two woodpeckers pecking away on this rotting tree stump. One flew away.        iPhone shots today.

You can watch the one pecking away in this video .

Found Message at the Playground

Beneath Your Feet is the weekly photo challenge

Signage, written in chalk.  No one else around don’t know who wrote it on the pavement in from of the bench.

Sunday evening, we were at the playground with my two youngest grandchildren.  My sister Mary  is the one who pointed it out.

Of course, I had my cell phone to capture and share!  Didn’t walk on it. Just wondered who felt compelled to write it.

Hang up and parent sign

 

A Sunday in Columbus Topiary Garden

You know the painting.  It’s in Chicago. But in Columbus Ohio you can see the scene.

The topiary garden sculptures are  A Sunday on La Grande Jette 1884- Georges Seurat

The Topiary Garden in Old Deaf School Park in downtown Columbus Ohio. Artist James T. Mason’s creative idea along with his artist wife Elaine, according to the link -you can click on to read more.

We went there on Father’s Day after church.  Thanks for taking me to see it.

 

Taillight and a Tall Pine in the Snow

Back to the park after school. I was later today.  The sun was sinking in the west and this was facing east.  When I wrote taillight it didn’t look correct but I checked it out with Merriam- Webster online and it is spelled right!    I thought about cropping out the car end but  changed my mind.  I think it adds perspective and information, allowing one to judge how tall the pine tree is.  It looks dead to me, but I am not an arborist.

Looks like the snow glows from the reflected setting sun.

 

It is a pine tree, isn’t it?
