and I expect you have guessed
on closer inspection it was a Yew tree with berries
these berries are actually called 'aril's' and are wax like - almost looking artificial because they are so perfect.....but then nature can be perfect sometimes don't you think....
another plant I couldn't help but photograph was this Virginia Creeper, doing what its name implies and 'creeping' over a wall making a perfect design
It looks almost 'staged', which is why I had to take a photo!
