    Actually, the berries are edible for birds,but maybe not for humans. ( I never tasted one! ) We had a long hedge of them in front of our house when we lived in the South West. I used to watch many different birds go to the hedge and eat their fill of the berries. Beautiful sight...both birds/berries...Betty :-)

    Nice pics, Branka! I didn't have much opportunity to go an take pics this autumn, unfortunately. Guess it is just as well the colors weren't quite as spectacular this year around me.

    Branka, is that a vineyard?

    Yes Paul, all these pics were taken among vineyards: my company organizes every third Thursday in October, chesnut's golf tournament - literally among the vineyards, where I take care of organizing the tournament - have some time to take some pics too. Roasting chestnuts is of course an integral part of this event. In addition to roasted chestnuts there is the must too....yummy

    There are some more pics - these may not be so picturesque, but I think they are magic in some way...

    They are magical Branka. They have captured all the magic of autumn - the hazy/misty autumn light, the warm autumn colours and that tranquil autumn country scene.(At least from memories of 4 autumns past spent in England as a student in the late 50s).

    Once again GREAT shots. Thanks for posting them.
