Gratitude Monday -- For the Birds
We have all manner of interesting plants growing in our yard. Those who can grow plants are said to have a green thumb. My husband has two green hands.
Among the foliage we have are river grapes, Vitis riparia, and this year they produced.
We didn't know as they have so many leaves the fruit only showed when the leaves died.
We tried a few and they were okay. The seed is pretty big so it's a bit of an effort to eat them.
Husband picked a few then decided the birds would enjoy them more than we did.
I am grateful for this bounty, for the chance to try them, and for being able to offer the birds a fruit course this autumn.
