I appreciate Holly very much because I understand its attraction. In the middle of a cold, bare winter, there is a happy green bush yielding lovely, bright red berries. In past times being without electricity, light, central heating and experiencing hardship and grey, dark days, this green bush was an eye catcher. Even for me now, despite the luxuries of the 21st century, Holly holds this attraction. It whispers to me; ‘I am colourful during the winter. I keep your spirits high and hope doesn’t dwindle if you surround your house with me or bring me in to decorate your hearths’.
Holly is Ilex. Or Evergreen. What name do you use? Why do you like Holly? Or maybe you don’t?
