A quick drive along an unfamiliar back road led me to these beautiful shrubs. They were growing wild along the road so I picked a branch and brought it home with me. I've been looking for hours and can't find anything other than a Goji berry that looks similar but the leaves don't appear the same. Does anyone know this bush?
It must have been a great year for berries because the same road was loaded with Snowberries and Oregon Grape and dried Saskatoons. I guess that explains why we have so many birds here.
