DAY 162 (14 SEPTEMBER) – Oregon grape (Mahonia aquifolium Pursh) (Farnham, UK)
I returned to my study of the hedge around Waitrose car park today. This is such an striking autumnal sight. The holly-style leaves on the turn against the grape-look-a-like berries.
I read the berries are used to treat stomach ulcers and acid reflux disease. How appropriate next to the supermarket.
