Ruby Tuesday



My red today is the fruit of our lily of the valley plants.  The berries are about 1/2 inch in diameter and the most beautiful ruby red.

Like ripe red cherries,
lily-of-the-valley fruit
tempts me to nibble…

our lily of the valley in Ontario does not have any fruit. Is this just a B.C. phenomena or is it a differnt kind of lily of the valley than the one I am familiar with?

What fun little berries. And nice job with the macro shot!
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

Ann - I don't know if they're edible. I'm not gonna try, either.

Angie, Nina - I'm not sure why some of them have berries. Most of the plants do not. And some, like this one, have two. They've been here a long time - over 30 years. Maybe that's why?

Stephani, how pretty. I had no idea Lilies of the Valley produced such berries.

These are a gorgeous shade of red! I'll bet some bird will like them.

I remember having lily of the valley plants at the house where I grew up but can honestly say I don't remember seeing fruit on ours. I think you have magical soil!
:D
