Still working on my All Request assignments:
Likes2mtnbike requested sparkleberry (Vaccinium sp.)
Those plump berries will shrivel and hang on the bushes all winter feeding the yankee birds who travel here to escape the cold. We like those birds because they are polite enough to go home in the spring.
When I occasionally carve a cane or walking stick, this is a tree I seek out. The wood is hard and pinkish white.
It easily resprouts after a stick cutting so I don't even have to kill the sparkleberry.
That wouldn't be a very sparkley thing to do.
