You’ve got to love Google search! I love these very thick and adundant bushes at my son’s school that display hundreds of tight grapes of red berries in the winter, bringing color to our chilly winter mornings. I took several photos of the bushes and their red berries recently and wanted to post a few here (see below), but I had no idea what the plants were.

So I searched for “bush with red berries”, and after looking through dozens of photos on Google, I found out these bushes are called Cotoneaster Lacteus. A fancy Latin name for an evergreen hedging shrub that features both flowers and berries (not simultaneously  of course). So if you’ve ever wondered what Cotoneaster Lacteus bush and its berries look like, this is the post for you. 😉

Remember you can click on each photo to see a larger version of it.

I love the abundance of red berries on each branch!

I took these photos on a frosty morning, so you can see the frost melting in some areas, while it leaves a layer of white dust in others. This last photo is my favorite of the bunch.

    What great, vivid colors. And it just shows once again that I have no idea how I survived before Google. 🙂

      No kidding, huh? There are still some plants/flowers I can’t figure out, although I see them everywhere here. Sometimes I ask other people and it helps too. 😉

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
