day 8:: holly
I realise that I have been somewhat unadventurous with my calendar this year, so much so that - apart from my outing to Bath - I have hardly gone beyond the bounds of the neighbourhood. I wondered where I might get my holly from this year - local cemeteries (again), the tree in the square that the foxes play under, or the lovely avenue of hollies in Victoria Park I discovered last year. Then I had a doh moment and realised that perhaps I could stay even closer to home and use the holly in my own garden. It's a lovely lollipop shape and this year, surprisingly, there are still berries on it. If we're lucky there may be enough to put on the Christmas pudding.
I'll try to be a little more adventurous in the next few days, but don't hold your breath.
