“Poking around the Pokeweed”

by ESP on November 19, 2011

Here is my entry to this months Gardening Gone Wild’s Picture This Photo Contest : http://www.gardeninggonewild.com/?p=19018.

This month’s theme is portraits.

I caught this strange explorer lurking under this pokeweed plant with its ripening berries. Indians used the juice from these very attractive berries for staining feathers, arrow shafts, and garments, but do not eat them (or any part of this plant), as the result would be violent and most uncomfortable.

 

Stay Tuned for:
