Even though it is cooler, I can't help but enjoy the beauty of fall.
I planted this Bittersweet vine the year before my husband died (2006) and it grew well, but never had any berries. In fact, it really grew more than I wanted it to. Last year Lou and I decided we would cut it back, because it was getting almost more than we could manage. We cut it back and Lou built a new support for it to grow on. I guess this is what it wanted, as this year we noticed it had berries and I have been watching for them to pop and look at how it has "popped". I am thrilled with the results. Krista tied it up a little more yesterday, to help protect it a little more during the winter.
