Jolly Holly (iPhriday Flowers)

‘Tis the season for holly. I just love it. Honestly, I could have vases of holly all over the house for December. It’s so beautiful and has such a lovely Christmas feel to it… a visual feel that is, lol!😂

Could be a good time to start looking into some plants for the garden in preparation for future Christmases I think. Plus I’m sure holly wouldn’t be that enticing to our deer but you never know!

It was wonderful being able to show the children what ACTUAL Holly plants looked like whilst we were in St Johns, Newfoundland.

It was almost sad to know they thought Holly was simply a Christmas ornament. Rather reflective our society I fear – if you can’t / don’t see the real thing, who’s to say it really exists?

This makes me more and more determined to show our children as much of the world as possible so they can make assumptions based on facts and their own experiences. Guess I’ll be hearing a lot more of… “mum, how much longer?”
