Nice photos. Are winterberrys edible.

Thanks, Rhonda! Winterberry is a member of the holly family and though poisonous to humans, provides a good source of food for birds and wildlife far into winter. It is popular in landscaping for its bright splash of color, its attractiveness to birds, and for use in floral arrangements.

Beautiful!
I've seen something very similar at a house down the road. Don't know the people, but maybe I'll just stop by one day and ask.
Hope you are having a happy day!

Thanks, Lea! There are a lot of red berries around this time of year that feed the birds, such as bittersweet and chokeberry.
