This was taken on a very dreary New Years Day at Queen’s Park in Swindon.  I lived in Swindon until I was 17 and this was one of the places I loved but I was very surprised to find so much colour there.

These purple berries were mixed in with several different types of grass and I loved the way the long thin leaf was intertwined with this particular branch of berries.

  1. I googled purple berries Scilla and the nearest were some called “Callicarpa bodinieri” commonly called Beauty Berry apparently. There are several different sorts.. I’d never seen them before. On this particular variety there were no leaves just the berries… gorgeous.
