It's Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday again and as any other meme's I am excited with this one. My feature of this week is all about Holly
The first time I set my eyes on this tree is when I first came here in US in 2004. It was fall when I arrived here and everything was all brown and it was cold. Coming from a tropical country Philippines the weather and the surrounding was very new to me I had to adjust a lot. But of all the barrenness kind of feeling that engulfed me the holly berries makes me smile. One time I was so fascinated by it I couldn't help but walk near it and touched it. I like it so much because of the very distinct red color and at the back of my mind how come this is the only tree that produces color on the brown and white surrounding. Well then I knew later that they survive winter for the animals or birds for their shelter and food. Though hubby told me that they are poisonous or mildly toxic when ingested by people, (I didn't knew that), I thought all berries can be eaten like strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, blackberry (is that the cellphone? ^_^) blueberry, mulberry (can't stop eating with this one just love it), elderberries, etc ^_^ but I guess in every rule there is always an exception hehe and the holly berry is one of them. Enjoy the weekend everyone and be safe!
