In the summer, one section of my backyard gets covered in Bittersweet vines. And though the plant is considered to be invasive, I am somewhat grateful for the green jungle which is created by all the new foliage. I suppose the plant itself is bittersweet in that way. By fall, little yellow berries form and turn reddish-orange. This cowl is
inspired by these bittersweet berries, which glow in the warm autumn sun.
