The Red White and Blue

My colorblind eyes see just a bit of red hiding in this photo, hope I got it right. This is my neighbor’s tree, it was beautiful before the leaves burst out last spring. Then came those damned big red berries, the kind that fall on my concrete approaching the front door.

They waste no time staining the concrete, hence I had to take a bucket of water and my concrete broom out there and try to grind off as much stain as possible. If it were my tree, the bloody thing would have been cut down and gone to the landfill long ago.
