I always think there’s something hauntingly beautiful about trees in winter. I’ve left this shot in colour, but it’s almost black and white. The skyscape seemed to be a fitting herald for the forecast snow. I wonder how many snowstorms that tree has faced?It's kind to share!
December again, already…! I noticed how much of this there was in an old apple tree I have. Somehow, it’s strange to think of mistletoe as a parasitic plant; there’s no such thing as a mistletoe tree!
Until fairly recently, mistletoe was considered to be little more than a pest that damaged the host tree (other than its links with Christmas time!) but it does, in fact, make a positive ecological contribution.
