While I was in the backyard with the dogs this afternoon, I saw a bunch of yellow/orange color. Stepped closer and found a strange looking plant with, what looked like, some kind of raspberry.

When I came inside, I did some research online (gotta love the internets!!) and found that they were wineberries - related to the raspberry. It is an asian plant that is considered invasive here in the States.

It has very prickly stems, or canes I guess they are really called.

They are apparently edible and make good wine. They are just starting, so I will have to make sure I keep watch on them to see them get really ripe.
