Hello, Holly!

More flowers are flowering, more buds are bursting, and more leaves are leaping forth.  Yesterday I took a close look at the new growth on one of our holly bushes that lives below the big oak.  So much is happening now that, on the one hand, there’s no lack of fine new subjects, but on the other, it’s getting so that it’s hard to know where to start to present something new—this seemed like a good place for today!

    So Spring is well and truly here (at last). Nice shot of those holly buds too.

      All signs point to yes, Vicki, though it’s really chilly and windy here today, and you wouldn’t want to be outside for more than a minute or two without the extra warmth of at least a light jacket. Still, the sun is shining and the colors are wonderful. Nice to see that you’re having a pleasant autumn down there, too!

  4. I love the detail and color you captured; really great photo.

    The contrasting colors of the new growth are really wonderful, and they help so much to complement the deeper, more mature colors of last year’s foliage. Thanks for this, Charlie!

    Nice shot Gary. I like the acorn cup, holder, things, great texture. (yeah that’s right, I know all the scientific jargon)

    I love the holly and oak…. Had never seen holly in “real life” until moving to Utah…now I see it out in the mountains and canyons…with plenty of scrub-oak…and we have a Pin Oak tree in the yard, too…. Wonderful…..

    Love the detail in this image, Gary.

      So do I, M, and thanks for saying so! I was really hoping that the strand of spider silk would come out as well as it did, and I do love the textures in acorn caps.
