This is a hedge with large thorns and small leaves that turn in the fall, and has small red berries which the birds avoid.
Raindrops on roses: a photograph taken with my Canon S60. It was overcast, just after a rainfall and so there was very little contrast in the petals. Shadows and hilights adjusted in post processing.
From the Greek word klématis, a climbing plant, of about 200 species. The oils are extremely irritating to the skin and mucous membranes; the plant is considered toxic.
