Fruits Of Autumn/ Fruits Of Fall

Well, it is that time of year when the leaves on some of the trees change colour and fall to the ground, when berries, fruit and nuts appear on trees and plants. Nuts and berries are the fruit of trees and plants just the same as apples are on an apple tree. Below are some of the tree and plant illustrations from my book, ‘A Posy Of Wild Flowers’. These were done by my sister, Angela Corkery Bickley. (The pictures have been turned into cards too.)

HAZEL

ROWAN / MOUNTAIN ASH
