Happy Holly Days

Meserve Holly (Ilex 'Blue Girl')
These plants make good accent shrubs. Both male and female plants are required for pollination to set an adequate crop of berries. My problem here is that our large population of winter birds rarely leave many of the showy fruits for Christmas decoration. Very productive holly with repeat blooms. Heavy fruiting of berries. Pictures to follow.

Lovely! And appropriate... Merry Christmas!
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Perfect banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
