12 September


the bayberry bushes are loaded with berries

i've been to the path along the beach

i brought home 

a little clipping in a small jelly jar 

and set it on the kitchen table

the morning sun shines in through the window

lighting on the greenish grey berries 

warming them just enough to perfume the house with their fragrance

bringing nature inside is one of my favorite things to do


  1. ... and use the bay leaf in soup/stews in winter. Bonus. :)

    1. I'm not sure if these are the same type of bay leaves they use for seasonings.

  2. this is a very pretty photo, I've never heard of bayberries...

  3. I love that she does this. It makes me smile. :)

  4. I love this shot of the bayberries....it is very nice to be able to bring nature inside and let it spread it's aroma for us to enjoy...

  5. I love that she does this. I have always like the scent. But also because the very first time I kissed her we were both eleven years old and playing truth or dare in the middle of a huge Patch of Bayberry bushes. And I can still remember the smell of them to this day.

  6. I never made the connection between bayberries and bay leaves until this post! I'm not sure what todo with the berries, but sure would cook with the leaves!

  7. What a beautiful shot of the bayberries. I'm all for bringing elements of nature into the home... not to mention the sweet aroma that accompanies these natural elements.

  8. Oh, I enjoy bringing nature inside too! Especially at THIS time of year...before it all fades away.

  9. How unique, I would be delighted for you to share them in Texture Twist Photo Link!

  10. I've never seen these - do they have a scent?

    1. They have a wonderful scent. You may have smelled it before in bayberry scented candles.

  11. How pretty! I've never seen these before. Thank you for sharing them with us at the HomeAcre Hop! We'd love to have you back again on Thursday.

  12. Lovely. Not much more to say than that! Well, I guess Thanks! :)

  13. Finding touches of nature indoors is such a delight. Not to mention the added scent it brings. Beautiful bayberries! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
