The berries are still a vibrant color but definitely have seen better days. There are still many bunches that just don't seem to want to give up.
The rain stopped last night and the sun came out this morning in this beautiful blue sky. Here you can see the new growth along side of the old berries.
By next month these buds should pop. What's going to happen to the berries? I don't know. Check back in May to find out.
To see the changes, go to June, July, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, and March.

It's been eleven months since I began this project of monthly photos of the Highbush Cranberry. Some of the berries are still hanging on. We've had nine inches of rain here in New England over the last three days and still they hang on. Our yard is a total quagmire that I slogged through in Paul's boots to get these photos this afternoon. You can see a puddle at the base of the bush.
