You have a great start to your website . The drawing of the frog is amazing.

I'm not an expert, but I think that does look like wild cranberry. If it is, very cool!

Also, that's a neat sketch of a frog :)

I was thinking more about this, and don't cranberries ripen in the fall? Why would they be ripe now? Are they leftover from the fall do you think? Or is there a look alike species that also lives in wetlands? Very interesting find either way.
