Mistletoe & Holly

On our walk today, we got up close and personal with two festive plants. Mistletoe is actually a parasitic plant with poisonous berries. It forms balls in the tree branches. Now is a good time to cut them out of trees because they are highly visible without the leaves. Holly is both a bush and a tree, with pretty silver bark. Only the female holly plant produces berries.
