Around my Yard

Catching up for lost time... learning all I can about gardens, plants and designs... and taking pictures along the way...

These look good enough to eat! But these berries are for the birds.  The aptly named “winterberry holly” (Ilex verticillata) is a shrub/small tree that has nice flowers in the spring and develops berries in the summer. The berries are a spectacular sight in the winter garden (especially once it snows)!
