Sundays in My City, Signs of Fall

Welcome back to Chico, CA, for Sundays in My City, hosted by the fabulous Unknown Mami. Visit her site to take a fascinating tour of bloggers' hometowns.
 
Juicy grapes (above) and vibrant blueberries (below) - or so I assumed and thus ate both.
But JoJo has informed me that these (below) are poisonous....OOPS!

  1. Those heart shaped red things are grapes? I've never seen grapes like that!

  2. I put blue jeans on for the first time in four months (meaning I wore shorts-I didn't go without pants) and I'm wearing a sweatshirt.
    I don't care what the calendar says.
    Fall's here.

  4. Not the heart shaped ones, Alex. I'm not sure what they are. They had a little seed or berry inside, But I didn't taste it. Anyone know?

    The pic right above my comment has grapes.

    Al, I won't worry. You're 3000 miles away. You need not worry about seeing my pasty legs either. Note: I'm assuming your legs are pasty. Perhaps that's unfair of me. (?)

    Pat, I don't know for sure. You might be right. But I did sample both and that was my assessment.

    Debra, yes. Thanks.

    Happy almost fall, everyone.

  7. Just make sure you know WHAT it is, BEFORE you eat it! LOL!

  8. Those bottom ones are pokeberries. AT least that pic looks like a plant in my yard that everyone's told me are pokeberries. I was also told they were poisonous, so I hope that's really a species of blueberry.

  9. It feels like summer has passed here in Oregon. Today we have thunder and lightening. In fact we just lost power for a few minutes.

  10. Fall has always been my favorite season. Love it when the leaves turn!

  11. I love the vibrancy of the photos here. Such a treat for the senses. Our aspens are just starting to turn golden and it's jacket weather lately. Now if we could get out from under all this rain in Colorado!

  12. JoJo, I'm laughing. OOPS!! I ate it. I'm still alive. I hope to stay that way for a while.

    MsA, I should've read your comment first.

    Julie, stay safe over there.

    Thanks, all.
    Enjoy the signs of fall.

  15. I was going to ask about the heart shaped things as well. I haven't a clue what those are. As for the berries, I am not one to ever eat things in the "wild" as I can not be trusted to know what is poisonous or not. Glad it didn't make you sick.

  16. As we are still having days in the 100s, I am jealous of any signs of fall!
    They are beautiful!

  17. So glad you told me they were poisoness - because they definitely look good enough to eat!

  18. Nice fruit. I love grapes. Starlings robbed most of mine this spring to line their nests. So, I didn't get any.

  19. such beautiful colors of rich fall. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Those blue berries look plump and juicy. I thought they were actually blueberries at first. I love the shades of autumn. Not the winter that falls after that...not so much!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aha Robyn,

    Leaf it to you to create such an autumnal posting.

    It was a grape post. Thanks for sharing. Following :)

  22. I love this time of the year and the variety of colours that come with fallen leaves. Only ever eat the berries that the birds eat. Are you sick from the toxic ones ?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have seen those bottom berries before. We called them ink berries when I was growing up. Not sure what their real name is. We were always told not to eat them.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lovely photos. I wish I had time to sit and watch the leaves turn, but I bet they would wait until the minute I looked elsewhere.

    You're brave to eat something if you're not sure. I've never picked blueberries, so can't help you there. (But they look like blueberries to me too.)

  25. What a wonderful way to appreciate fall. I love all the pics - gorgeous! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love fresh blueberries. Now I am hungry. Too bad I am on the other hemisphere, where they are way out of season.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just read that blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. Of course I like them best when they're chocolate covered or in a smoothie! Pretty autumn pictures!

  28. Yes, that beautiful, beautiful photos, delicious colors that fall forward!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lovely photos! There is definitely the feel of fall in the air here too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And yet the poisonous ones look the most beautiful and therefore the most appetizing. F**k you, nature!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nothing that uplifts the spirits than a fruit garden! Photos are lovely, Robyn! Fall is a great time, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think you should crush those juicy grapes with your bare feet and make your own red wine, Robyn. I would certainly drink it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. As much as I hate to see summer go, I just love the colors of fall!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hooray!! Fall!! I'm SO excited!! Beautiful pictures!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. While I enjoy watching the leaves turn beautiful colors I hate raking the yard after they drop to the ground. Plus, I hate the cold!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Followed closely by winter. We've finally had a couple of cool days :)

    I'm glad you're ok!

  37. Robyn. Your book is beautiful! What lovely writing. I am enchanted with it all especially. Just the right time, Bravo for you,

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks so much, Jenny. I'm honored.

    To anyone reading this, I am dedicating more time making rounds versus leaving individual comments on my blog. So excuse me for not responding to each of you here.

    Happy almost Fall, dear friends.

    Don't eat poisonous berries. But if you do, you won't necessarily die.

    Keep a smile and a stash of chocolate.

  39. Beautiful shots Robyn! Guess this means the heat has gone out of your summer now?

    Glad you didnt eat them!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, you hit that nail right on the head! Not only are they pasty, all those years of wearing stretchy uniform socks have worn away half the hair on my shins.
    Plus, the varicose veins make my legs look like road maps.
    Yep. I'm a hotty.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yep, the palm fronds are beginning to turn color....NOT! You know where I live and the only difference between summer and fall is that the days get shorter.

    Of course, we aren't home! We're up by Pismo Beach and it is kind of foggy and very cool here. Loving it!
