Field Notes
I am happy, because we get to be outside in great weather. Questions and problems we ran into were, we first thought that something else was woody nightshade, but we then found it for real. We see, hear, and smell, we saw small berries and black on leaves. There wasn't much smell. We heard a bee by the plant. We smelled the freshly cut grass. We're not surprised by what we found, because we weren't surprised because Maine has a lot of berries throughout the state.

The plant also has vines that are holding the berries. The vines had a bluish color, just like the vines in the photos.

Comments

Good work, Quentin. You did find solanum dulcamara. The detail on the vines and the close up photo of the arrow-shaped leaf with the berries helped me confirm this observation. I'm glad you had great weather for your fieldwork.

Keep observing!
