Ginny asked what are the berries in my post Flowers and Foolishness. The bush blooms December to March and it loves cold weather. It is a Powder Puff Bush
If you are allergic to bees you should know this plant is a bee Magnet. they love it and every bloom has it's own bee. On the good side Butterflies love it also.
Each berry has it's own show each day. this photo shows berry, partialy open puff and a full open puff. they do feel just like powder puffs.
The tip of every single limb has 10 to 30 berries at any given time. some open in twos and threes.
Others amaze me when five open on the same day. I picked this limb after I took the photo, made sure it was Bee Free and took it with me to visit my friends in a nursing facility. It was passed from hand to hand and powdered cheeks. the flowers are soft and delicate but hold up very well for a few hours.
