These bright red nandina berries caught my eye, but when we stopped to look at them, Hickory and I noticed the shrub’s leaves.
“The edges seem to be burnt,” I said.
“Not burnt, frozen,” Hickory said. “These leaves must have grown late in the season during our warm weather, and didn’t have time enough to get tough for winter.” He looked at me and gave a definite nod before he scampered on.
Okay. I’ll go with that I decided.
