End of Year Favorites Part 4 (of 5): Focus on Fruits

endofyearfavesFruits_DirectorsBlog26Day four (of five) of some of my favorite photographic memories of the venerable plants of the Arnold Arboretum in 2015, with a focus on fruits.

Magnolia zenii, zen magnolia, in glorious fruit in August (430-91*A)

Elaeagnus umbellata, Japanese silverberry, with peltate trichomes (hairs) on fruits in November (20889*C)

Sorbus hybrid (parentage uncertain, but likely includes S. esserteauiana) with dense clusters of fruits in September (179-92*B)
