09.23.07 THE FOX AND THE MOON
Huge vines of hanging berries appear as the leaves begin to turn, fall and reveal their hiding places. Two species of vines with berries look very similar. One, the fox grape, Vitus labrusca, is the ancestor of the delicious Concord grape. The similar looking Canadian moonseed vine, Menispermum canadense, unfortunately is quite poisonous. Wonder what this attractive vine is?
