Cross-Country Connections: Harvest

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Harvest.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

CCC Harvest Erin (1024x1018)Unknown bushes with beautiful berries. I thought the colors were right, even though its been 90 degrees here in DC.

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:

CCC Harvest Mom (1024x765)Probably my last train ride from Carbondale to Chicago. The feed corn is ready for harvest.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

CCC Harvest Brianne (1024x687)

My take from a trip to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market.

    The mysterious bushes are a variety of Pyracantha.

    Yes, those are what we called pyracantha. If they ripen early enough in the season, and it remains warm, they can ferment and you can end up with drunk birds. Erratic flying is just one of the down sides. One of the saddest things I’ve seen is what appeared to be a hung-over bluejay. Sitting on a branch, at a slight angle, unsteady, early in the morning, looking sick, shaking its head. Looking like it is hating life.
