It’s been a good year for the holly berries, as Elvis Costello nearly once sang. Prior to this autumn if you had asked me if my hollies were berry-bearing ones I would have said no. Lovely variegated leaves but no berries. This year has proved me wrong and how! There are so many berries that you can see them from the house. It’s not only the outer branches either, there are berries tucked away deep into tree. Now the only question is, will the birds leave any so that I can use them to decorate the house at Christmas?
