Good morning, and Happy Pink Saturday. If y'all read THIS POST, you know that Connie and I have been doing a lot of work at Mark's and Sandi's house. After we complete the work outside, I will show you what we've done to the exterior as promised.
Meanwhile, I want to share pictures of an interesting vine that we uncovered when we started cleaning out the natural area. Mark says that it must have volunteered because he didn't plant it. I'm guessing some bird pooped a seed or two. Look at the beautiful colors in the berries, ranging from green and blue to bright pink.
The speckled ones remind me of robin's eggs. Here's another picture showing the beautiful range of colors.
A Google search on speckled berries turned up a name for this vine. It's called porcelain berry vine, and is sometimes nicknamed bubble gum vine because of the range of berry colors. It turns out that you don't want this vine in your garden. It can become invasive and is likened to kudzu, the vine that ate the South. In some states it's even illegal to plant it!
Fortunately, I found another plant we can live with. In the same bed was beauty berry, showing off its bright pink dress.
So enjoy your Pink Saturday, everyone, and be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound, where lots of folks will be dressed in pink. I, however, will be wearing my Razorback red and white, which could become pink if you mixed the two together.
