Asparagus berries

Have you ever seen the fruit of the common garden asparagus? If the asparagus spears are not harvested for eating, they grow, branch out with fine leaves, flower, and set fruit. Just like most plants. When I first saw this process, I realized why asparagus ferns are called that. They look very similar to garden asparagus. In fact, asparagus ferns are a variety of asparagus. Who knew?

We're getting back into our walking routine with Tasha. The walks are short for the time being, but they'll lengthen as the days pass. She's going up and down the stairs now with ease, but we're still keeping them blocked with gates because she has a tendency to run down when she hears something outside. We don't want her to misstep and re-injure herself.


  1. Who knew? I didn’t. So glad about Tasha.

  2. That's a really cool photo, and I'm glad Tasha is on the mend.

  3. The things you learn from reading blogs!
    That close-up looks like it could be a tiny Christmas tree branch.

  4. mitch, so much to learn, so little time.
