Sweet Juniper Bushes, Lafayette Park

Posted by jdg | 11:51 AM

Our neighborhood is full of these juniper bushes, technically Juniperus Virginiana (or Eastern Red-cedar). There are juniper berries growing on them most of the year, and when we walk past I often grab one and bite down on it to get that little taste of gin. Unfortunately this is also the dog's favorite place to relieve himself, so I make sure to pick a berry growing well above the reach of dog piss.
