Awesome shots Laura! Picture postcard perfect.
With so much snow covering a guess Mr Pheasant is enjoying those good
looking red berries. Again, beautiful shots.

The vine is a bittersweet .... the berries are colorful and birds are supposed to like them.So far I have had some waxwings,robins and now a pheasant eat from the vine.

I can sent you a plant or some seed if you like.I have read they are invasive and can damage trees and buildings.It does wind it's way into our garage in spots but ours is an old broken down one.We will be digging it out when we build our new garage.I am going to try growing a new vine in a pot where I can keep it contained and trimmed ..... hopefully .... lol.

Sure! If you have some slips that would be great. I'll plant that or grapes, one or the other. I usually leave all my fruit for the birds and the thought of whiteflies has me turned off grapes.....

.... we have grapes here,never had any problems with pests.The birds get what they want because Brian doesn't eat much ... lol.I would like to have a concord grape for the birds,the fruit is smaller and easier for the birds to eat.

Also love to have a high-bush cranberry .... ( big sigh ) .... I am a dreamer ....
