Not holly but misteltoe

Today I bring you mistletoe...soon will find some holly. This oak is the only one that I saw with mistletoe growing in it...on the earthen dam that forms Lake Tomahawk.

All the green you see on the oak tree is mistletoe.  Since this is at a park, it's unlikely the Black Mountain Parks Department will harvest it.  But perhaps some enterprising persons will.

Quote for today:

And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.
Meister Eckhart


  1. I learn something new every time I visit your blog! Very interesting.

  2. I used to go out with my father many years ago. He would shoot the mistletoe out of the tree. I did it once myself and learned not to hold the shotgun against my shoulder. The kick sent me to the ground.

  3. I really never knew where mistletoe did grow. You live in a beautiful area.

  4. Holly and ivy I have in plenty but no mistletoe (that I know of.)
