Quotation of the Week (37/2010)


“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.”

~ Edwin Way Teale (1899-1980) ~

Interesting quote, but even more interesting very strange loooking berries. I don't think I would want to eat them!

The berries are rose hips although a smaller and more oblong type than our most common (?) ones. We don't eat these raw but they are rich in vitamin C and they're used to make herbal tea and dessert soup. I don't think many people pick their own but there is industrial production of a rosehip soup powder commonly used.

Makes you think does that one. True though.
