Botany picture #162: Rhamnus alaternus
Rhamnus alaternus (Rhamnaceae), France, 2014. Not much I can tell you about this plant except that I saw it on a rocky roadside slope when we were stopping to admire a waterfall. I then thought to myself, I have not the foggiest idea what this is but with such distinctively coloured fruits it cannot be hard to figure it out. And so it proved.
