Natural holly

November 16, 2008 | By | 1 Reply More

You’ll sometimes see festive indoor holly displays during the holiday season.   The magic is already happening outdoors, though, and it’s fun to watch how it naturally happens.  These beautiful berry-filled branches erupt without any human assistance.   Truly, there are two big holly trees in front of my family’s house, and all we ever do is trim them back.  They sprout like giant weeds.  Click on these images to fill your monitor.

The leaves are smooth and fun to touch, except for those brutal points.  These are well-fortified trees.  I tried to give an insect’s point of view, using the “macro” function of my Canon SD1100SI.
