I am unable to help identiy the plant, but I can tell you one thing, tho...you took some great photos of it!
Kate, you are too kind! I hope you have a great week!
I wish I could help you Suzie, but as Kate said, it sure makes for a great image.
Got nothing for you. sorry about that. But now you've really peaked my curiosity.
Its pokeberry (poke weed). American wild bush, extremely common just north of here. The mature berries will stain the heck out of anything.
Somehow, Jess, I knew you would know!! Thanks so much!
They call if poke salad here. But it is poisonous. Guess it can be cooked and then made edible but you won't find me trying it.
