White Bryony berries

Walking near Painswick yesterday was very pleasant in between the storms, the hedgerows have many different types of red berries which according to folklore predict a harsh winter to come.
At least the birds and other wildlife have plenty to feast on at present. The birds in our garden are not that bothered about visiting the feeders at present, there is plenty of other food around for them at the moment.
Write Bryony berries are very attractive as you can see below, but poisonous to humans. The leaves of the plant are the yellow ones which are dying but the berries look splendid in this old mixed hedge against all the other leaves.
