Monday Morning Blues



Just a change of pace from my more usual rose hips;  here are some juniper berries.  Don't you love the dusky blue color?  Happy Monday!

I do like the colors. It makes me feel kind of Spring-like on this gray, foggy morning here in SC.

I love the blue!
I took tons of photos of the juniper berries on my Christmas wreath last year. So much texture and color. Fun with macro!

YES i love them! They inspired a scannography piece of mine lately and it's one of my favorites.

Happy Monday to you.

I love juniper berries. Literally, they make a great seasoning on marinated lamb, (however I don’t think they are the same species). Split one open and smell it. (Smells like Gin.) Nice image!
