Life is... Bitter-Sweet!

So many of us enjoy this time of the year:
the cooler temps, changing colors, putting our gardens to rest
in anticipation of winter (even here in South Jersey!)

One of my favorite annual "adventures" is combing the backroads 
for a stand of bitter-sweet!  I found these just east of the
Delaware Memorial Bridge...  just waiting to be snipped off
and brought home to be enjoyed for a season!


  1. Oh, I love Bittersweet -- its such a beautiful sign of Autumn.

  2. You and me both... I brought some in the house and took some to my office as well; just can't get enough of it (wink!)

  3. How long do they last? We plan to move to Tennessee in the next five or so years, and I want to grow some there. Soil is too alkaline here. :)
