That's lovely Dave.
Did you know that the flesh of the ripe (red) berry is the only part of the tree which is not poisonous? Don't eat the seed in the middle though!
I've tried one and it's sweet, jammy, juicy and gooey with a slightly odd flavour that makes you wonder whether you didn't actually just eat a poisonous bit!!
My wife told me that just last week, Chris. I hope you're not having an affair with her?!
I don't like these pretend berries, but appreciate the photograph, Dave.
Thank you folks.
Yes, I do know about the berries, they do taste good. Some of my gardening customers have yew trees / hedges, so I have the occasional berry.
I agree, that really is rather lovely, Dave. The soft light and natural colours are just right I think.
