Here Comes Autumn

A grey and sodden day yesterday but as evening arrived, the skies cleared and we had a glorious sunset. Grabbed a few shots which I may post soon but on the way, noticed the beauty of Sambucus nigra "Thundercloud", the dark leafed, pink flowered version of the European Elder tree, hanging with black berries and many waterdrops. Thought you might like to share! Discovered lots of little fungi too, but that's for another day!

Thank you to all who looked in, commented and voted on my previous upload and on all other postings. Your encouragement is so valued!

Probably best viewed Large, if you can spare the time!!

Memories come flooding back with this posting Ann, when I was into producing home wines once upon a time Elderberry (Sambucus melanocarpa) ? was my "Red" or Bilberry if I could talk the kids into the picking (being closer to the ground) Lol, wonderful threesome with the droplets adding that autumnal equinox feel..

Lovely shots. Is this the sambucus variety that is so good to help us get over colds and flu?
