Holly in the Snow

We have several Holly bushes that we have been slowly nursing along for more than 10 years now.  My wife wanted to have the red berries for Christmas things.  It took about 7 or 8 years for one of them to finally produce berries, first a few then the next few years big crops.  Unfortunately for my wife, the robins also took a liking to the Holly berries and in spite of numerous tricks like netting and yelling at the robins endlessly we are sadly left with no Holly berries to admire by Christmas.

Today the tree is getting a nice dusting of snow.  In our end of the Bella Coola Valley we have had light but steady snow most of the very early morning before daylight and through the day.  Environment Canada has  a 20 to 30 cm snowfall warning for the Bella Coola Valley today and tomorrow.  It was a pleasant day.  Grizzly
