13 December: Holly, ivy, and sloes

Part of this afternoon's walk was along a sunlit hedge, festively decorated with holly -

- ivy, and lichen -

- and sloes! This is the first time we've seen fruit on these sloe trees, though they have plenty of blossom every year.

Perhaps the birds find them too sour to eat until everything else has gone.
