I have sooooo fallen off the Floral Friday bandwagon! Apologies.
Not much to say about this image other than it’s from the holly tree in our backyard, and it’s a gorgeous, mature specimen we inherited from the prior owner. I’m eternally grateful it’s on our side of the fence; my next door neighbor likes to walk barefoot, and he always complains about how the fallen leaves hurt his feet. I think he’d chop it down if he had the chance.
I won’t lie: I curse like a sailor whenever I get stuck in the fingertip by the leaves when I’m cleaning out the beds underneath this tree, but it’s so beautiful. Worth the temporary pain, I suppose.
Took this image several years ago during a late spring snow, of all things. I love the Kodachrome-esque light.
