Hickory bole and Heavenly bamboo, Roscoe
This is our hickory tree, down by the water in back. The plant with red berries is nankin, or heavenly bamboo. It is not a bamboo, nor is it heavenly anymore, as Florida has it listed as an invasive species. It has lovely leaves that change color in the winter. It is the only one we have and is quite slow growing. I'll probably pull it up in the spring as I don't want to help an invader.
