These were found along the roadside at the farm in SW Florida in September. Some were in full flush and others were a bit played out. I will write about beautyberries as time allows, since they are said to make a wonderful mosquito and perhaps even flea and tick repellant...said to be safe and effective. The whole plant has herbal uses. The berries are edible but flavorless unless made into jelly. That will be one of my experiments, as will be making the "repellant tea." Had to share the shots before too many more weeks pass!
