Ok, I would love to post some pictures here, but I don't know how. Can someone please be kind enough to tell me how to post pictures. I went in to the pictures on my computer and copied one, but could not paste it here.

 

Thank you for the help

Lovely photos, Sarafina! Especially the mountains and the flowers. :smile:

 

Here are a few photos of mine.  Sort of random, there's some artsy stuff, a snail portrait, a Starling photobomber, a spider and some flowers. Oh, and a monster alien grasshopper.

Just returned from an impromptu 3:30am aurora/Northern Lights chase.  Ended up driving 8 miles to the river delta to get this shot.  I hope it's still considered a "nature pic"?  (The one thing I loathe about the internet is loss of image quality after uploading.  The original isn't nearly as grainy/pixelated and the shooting star is much more visible.)

You mean the fifth photo from my post Capsicum? They are elderberries (Sambucus nigra) and I don't know what pokeberries are. The elder is very important to me though because it is closely associated with the underworld and witchcraft in European lore.

Ah, there are supposed to be elderberries around here, remnants of the British colonial days when they were brought over to Virginia specifically for making alcohol of some fashion.  I've never seen them, all I ever see are pokeweeds which look fairly similar other than the way the berries/flowers form on the plant.  They're literally everywhere.  Pokeweed is also called the "American Nightshade" and was important in my country's history for use as an ink (especially in times of war or frontier exploration) and as a dye.  It's very likely this was learned from the Native peoples.  Some historians believe that our Declaration of Independence from Great Britain was written in pokeberry ink, but I think this was recently disproven.  It's notably poisonous but aside from that has high utility for magical inscriptions using pokeberry dye and blood (something I do on occasion.)

If there are any pokeweeds in my country they must be in botanical gardens/parks and such as they contain a lot of non-native imported trees, shrubs and plants from throughout the world.  

 

Did you know that before entering the Mayflower, the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from the Netherlands to Great Britain first in a ship called the Speedwell before crossing the Atlantic to the U.S.? They may have taken a lot of plants/seeds with them.
