20th November - Berries!
They do say that if there is a fine crop of berries in the autumn it presages a cold winter to come ... and if the holly berries are following tradition we may be in for some really chilly days ahead. Today I noticed that there is a fine, dense crop of berries in the wood, and also along the lanes, paths and hedgerows nearby.
At some point in the past a cultivated holly must have cross pollinated with a native bush to produce this "sport" with cream, variegated leaves. They are so pretty!
