Winterberry painting with chickadee

Showy ladies slipper orchid painting
My winterberry is one of my favorite shrubs. It's beside my front door, and from spring through fall it's very nondescript. Then the leaves dry and fall off, revealing gorgeous red berries clustered tightly together. Some years they stay on all winter, providing a brilliant splash of red against the snow. In hard winters the birds strip them off, of course that's who I grow them for.
