Day 284, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Black Bryony (Tamus communis)

I find this a strange name as the plant is defined by it’s startling red shiny berries as it climbs and twists away from the hedgerow. A highly poisonous plant and a member of the Yam Family as Autumn and Winter progress the leaves will die back completely until just the withered twisted stems of Red Berries remain.
