Wow Kamaly this is great, we do have some cranberry's growing in the Netherlands too. Although it's not part of our Flora, it settled in some moor areas in the North of Holland.

The story goes that in 1845 a barrel of berries on landed on the shore of Terschelling (Dutch Island) and the species started conquering some parts of the Netherlands. The plant was discovered in 1868 by botanist Francis Holkema.

Hmm. I wish I could smell this photo.

LOL whoelius - unfortunately they don't smell like fresh roasted turkey dinner! I've heard from Nawitka you've got cranberry bogs in your area - well worth a trip in the fall when they flood the bogs!

And Thanks erik van dem Ham - very interesting to hear that. The Netherlands are sure a perfect spot for cranberries - though sure not quite the same as fields of tulips.

Fantastic photo-the colouring is just perfect.

Thanks tu-quoque! Cranberry harvesting is certainly different from anything people expect it to be, and it sure adds a special touch to our autumn season here. Thanks for visiting!
