I have never seen anything like them but they sure are pretty.
Thanks, Rose. I thought they were pretty, too.
Very pretty berries and these are new to me.
Me too, Nancy. I don't recall seeing them growing wild in the forest although I think I've seen them in a garden.
I'm sorry...I'm of no help whatsoever.
No worries, Lee. I don't think they are native to NZ but I don't think I've seen them in Oz, either. Although I've learned a friend in Tasmania has them in her garden.
They look like Dianella to me. I am pretty sure they aren't edible for humans.
I wasn't brave enough to take a bite to see if children might eat them, Serenata.

Thanks, Felicia. Yes, it does look like that is what they are.
I've never seen a purple berry like that but it's very pretty.
It is, isn't it, Ida.
There's an app you can download, you take a picture of the plant and it tells you what you are looking at. Hope it can help.
Thanks, Messymimi. I'll see if I can find it. I'd use an app like that a lot.
I've never seen anything like that.....
What a fascinating color and a beautiful photo of these pretty berries. I am sorry but I know nothing about them and have a hard time with ours too.
Never seen berries of that colour in my corner of the world. Pretty, but I don't think I'd dare taste them without knowing what they are!
...I'm no help here, I've never heard of dianella. A good rule of thumb here is that white berries may be poisonous.
Whatever it is, it takes a wonderful photo!
I am afraid I can't help but it appears you have a few who agree with your initial thought.I hope you are well, Pauline!
I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
