dogberries

Predictions for our region have been for a hard winter.  Acorns are steadily falling and squirrels are busy hiding them.  The  dogwood fruit is plentiful although the birds are fighting for the delicacy.

The name “dog-tree” entered the English vocabulary by 1548, and had been further transformed to “dogwood” by 1614. Once the name dogwood was affixed to this kind of tree, it soon acquired a secondary name as the Hound’s Tree, while the fruits came to be known as dogberries or houndberries.  – Source Wikipedia
