Bellamocha has a photo of the original Ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz at her web site. Go take a look!
On the weekend I stuck my head out my side door and it was snowing lightly. To my left is a bush, one of two I've never known the name of. But I noticed this little RED winter berry (past it's prime) among the green leaves and the snow so I took the shot. I've always noticed that this bush gets red berries along about Fall and the other bush, which is the exact same species never does. I know enough that that means the bush with the berries is a female and the other bush is a male. That in order to have berries there has to be two bushes... I don't think the bushes are holly bushes, the leaves aren't holly leaves but they must be related somehow. If anyone knows anything about my two bushes I'd sure appreciate an answer. :)
Here's a little collection of holly berries, leaves and pinecones in a tree-shaped container. I bought it at holiday time.
Next week I'd like to try some MACRO shots if everyone is willing. Let me know in the comments, okay?
