    Love your shot! The plant is commonly called a privet hedge in these parts. They are now considered to be an invasive plant species by the State of Georgia. http://www.invasive.org/browse/subinfo.cfm?sub=3035

    I was surprised & delighted to see a flock of at least 200 waxwings eating juicy red berries on a couple of trees in a Roswell parking lot yesterday. They let me drive right up to the trees to get a good look at them while they enjoyed their feast, chitter chattering the whole time. Don’t know what kind of tree it was, but will definitely have to find out so I can put one in my yard & hopefully entice them to Acworth! Made my day!
