Plant Photo: Heck Let's Just Call Them Ghostberries !
For everyone's entertainment, I spend hours keeping myself gainfully unemployed.
Going on twelve hours, now, I've been busy getting tonight's blog post ready.
From page 155 of ISBN978-4-408-32351-0, I have an identification.
They have a photo of the same plant, I shot outside the Wooden Toy Museum.
That's the Yambaru Field Guide, all in Japanese.
Not a problem, シラヌマカズラ, translates to Shiranumakazura, I can read that part.
No matter where you type the words, English or, Japanese, nothing shows up.
Even the Wikipedia folks USA and Japan, kept giving me nothing.
What do you call a white berry ?
Type that in the #1 search engine in the world, and BINGO !
Now, I know we have some sort of Snowberry or, Ghostberry here.
They are also known as Waxberry, of the Symphoricarpos family.
For now, we'll just call them Ghostberries.
It doesn't snow, in Okinawa but, we have a few ghosts. I just haven't captured one, yet.
Patience, we're working on it !
