Deck the halls . . .

with boughs of holly – winterberry holly that is.

Winterberry holly is a native deciduous shrub of Prince Edward Island. Although the leaves drop each fall, the berries remain on the branches and create a beautiful sight against the dark evergreens and white snow of a PEI winter.

We don’t have any snow yet
so it made the foraging a lot easier.

Blue sky, crisp air,
chickadees calling,
the spicy scent of pine,
the laughter of friends…
a lovely afternoon.

Natural Christmas beauty – deep green pine and bright red holly berries.

  1. Christmas was so beautiful in NH when I lived there. One could find similar berries. Candles in windows, wreaths on doors, and beautiful berries made it so wonderful. I miss New England during Christmas time. Thanks for the photos.
