Mistletoe arrived in early December!
This big bough arrived just in time for the first of this years Wreathmaking workshops in Kirkcudbright last night.
It's strung up on a branch for now as I find being in the open air & rain the best way to keep it looking green & fresh - the birds don't seem to bother with the berries unless they're any left in the New Year when they're really hungry.
And I still keep hoping it'll grow on one of my old trees one day...
A sort of 'Cut & Come' again treat to add to wreaths to make them extra special.
And of course a completely natural, compostable decoration too A little bit of romance, so many myths & legends associated with this strange plant.
