Deck the Halls…. berries on the shrubs photos

These images are of different photo-times. The top shots are recent a month ago; the bottom right shows a branch of berries starting to ripen. upper last shot is of what we call the “stud holly.” A few years ago our hollies won’t doing much in the way of making berries, so we adopted an appropriate plant…which has proven very successful. The last photo was taken of the big holly before the berry-making began. Some of the upper branches were broken in the severe storm we had in September when the over-hanging Japanese Plum tree branches broke and fell on the holly below. (I think the lower shot shows the plant in its blossom stage. (all photos ©Sometimes2021)

    1. Yhanks. My Holly crop was great this year, the big plants are 30 years old more or less. A lot of branches got wrecked in ice storms this year. I thought I would put a more festive header up for the season…the big yellow bug is cool and all, but not very festive. 🙂


    1. I haven’t ever been much of a Christmas fan…better when my kids were young. This year we bought our holiday feast from the Bob Evans restaurant, and it didn’t disaappoint! Wayyy much food. I will admit that I do miss my traditional treats and cooking though it was lovely not to have to fight with the turkey and all that.
