Ripening in purple


This picture was taken in Chikusei , September 2008. When I was to see the steam locomotive .
The berry is Japanese Beautyberry .
Growing ripe, it becomes purple.

In Japanese , it is named Murasaki Shikibu for the first Japanese literary woman.
Murasaki is meaning purple in Japanese.
She is well known as the author of the Tale of Genji.
It is the first Japanese clasic novel, written about one thousand years ago.
