What I believe to be some type of wild grapes.
Along the edge of woodlands
I find these (wild grapes?) growing around our lake as well as throughout Glendalough State Park. I've never dared to eat any but the birds seem to like them. They typically hang in clusters similar to that of grapes and are a dark purple color. They grow on long, vinning stalks that attached themselves to trees, often hanging down from their branches. They appear to favor dappled or full sun however the ones in full sun typical have their roots in shade or semi-shade. I also typically find them semi-close to bodies of water (the equivalent of a city block or less away).
