Yellow Berries on Blue Sky

Chinaberry (Melia Azedarach)

Chinaberry (Melia Azedarach)

Some Streets of Auckland are lined with these Chinaberry trees, which are a particular delight in winter after their leaves have fallen. The berries stay on for quite a length of time and make a blue sky even more attractive.

    Don’t know much about these trees. If the berries stay on I’m assuming that humans are not interested in them. Are they toxic for both humans and birds? The tree with its berries against the blue sky is very attractive.

    I love this strong bold contrast!

    Beautiful sky…I love the bright yellow berries. I wonder if those berries taste sweet? Yum. Happy Sky Watch!

    I haven’t seen chinaberry trees for many years. Thanks for the memories!


    Sky of wonder, sky of bliss,
    Who would think a sky like this
    Would permit my eyes to see
    Sun and moon and stars for free?

    New to me, but it’s a good photo with the blue sky.
