The holly and the ivy/ Now both are full well grown/ Of all the trees that are in the wood/ The holly bears the crown/ ...............................traditional song............... Surprised me when I found this hedge of ivy (sic) [edit] holly, so traditionally Christmas while I was still looking for fall color :)PJ

Great clarity. Wonderful image for the December DT. I love the look of holly with its bright berries and shiny green leaves. The clarity is wonderful and that is one of my favorite Christmas carols.

I couldn't help but post it now, as it was so pretty and I've never seen it look so fresh...she just called to me as I was walking alongside this rather large hedge, but ya'll are right. I'll take it down a bit later and resubmit when others are submitting slightly older versions of this fresh bush...muah..muah... :)PJ

You are so scheming arent you PJ?? LOL The holly is so good looking any time of the year!! I was going to say the same thing as the others but no sense in being repetitious again, & again, & again...etc. LOL Congrats on the first pre seasonal Xmas post...of the pre-season..(pre-seasonaly?) ;-)

If I didn't know this is how the green leaves look on holly, I'd swear you waxed them for this shot. They look so shiny and new. The red berries add a real contrast of color. So fitting for the holidays. A very vivid and sharp image. Thanx PJ.

This is lovely. I have always loved Holly. Add a little snow effect and repost it at Christmas and it will make the perfect Christmas card.

Earleen said it for me...leaves so green and berries do red. We had a tree between our back door and shed. Messy booger, berries all over the deck and the spiked leaves scratched my bald head to a bloody mess when I mowed the lawn. Here you have made it look beautiful. Good Job. Jas

Hi Pj,
"Holly" is a good reminder that the holidays are just around the corner, a time of year Joan and I look so forward to. You executed this image with great precision - framing, lighting, just the right amount of color, and I particularly like the metallic shininess to the leaves you somehow managed to capture. Very pretty.....Neil
