Around work here in north Toronto, there is a 1 mile track through brush and bush and a colleague and I tramped through it all.
Bitter nasty tasting berries.
I tasted them to confirm.
I brought my camera and took photos as we discussed business, the economy, life and careers.
The last raspberry of the season.

Staghorn Sumac - time to make some cold lemonade from it.
I've never seen Ribbed Plantain (P. lanceolata) before.
Or noticed it. Here are some nice specimans. Apply a poulstice of this to a wound and it will heal quickly. Seriously.
A knobbly fungus.
