Bittersweet~time to pick

It' time for me to go and pick the bittersweet in my yard, and also down the street in a field
Very pretty to decorate with.
In the fall, I cut lots of it for my house inside and out

Bittersweet is very invasive, it takes over everything.

  1. I love bittersweet but I know of no place where it is in abundance.

  2. Wonderful pictures! I've never heard about bittersweet (I first had to translate and to google it). I am afraid it doesn't grow in my neighbourhood... but I enjoy your photos!
    Hugs, Traude

  3. I never go out around town this time of year without my clippers. I am a lover of this wild beautiful vine. I am lucky to have it around in abundance. Gorgeous inspirational photos. Lori

  4. Love your new header picture! Bittersweet, what can I it. I sure wish it would grow here in Florida. How nice it would be to have it growing in my yard! I do have access to red pepperberries in December. Maybe we could trade? Have a great week,

  5. I love bittersweet! I know it's invasive, but I still think you're lucky to have it!

    BTW, I love your new header!

    :) T

  6. I wish I could find it here and pick it. I know so many who can find it near their homes. I love that first wreath...I have such a hard time finding wreaths that full and beautiful.
    Love your new banner :)

  7. Hi, I love your new header photo. there's something so natural in it and still charming.
    I had never hear about bittersweet before and even doubt it grows anywhere in Italy. Oh well, as long as I can enjoy it thru your photos I'm happy enough.
    have a great evening

  8. I just found you through White Wednesday. You have a beautiful blog. I love the bittersweet too. I planted it last year and forgot about it until it bloomed this year. What a happy surprise. It is just so pretty.

  9. i'll have to see about growing some in pots? how else can we keep it from taking over? Lovely photos!!!
