Lots of Berries !

Just thought I'd show you the Holly tree in my garden. Look at all the berries already. Its always nice, with  lots of dinner for the  Thrush in November, its the only time I ever see these birds and when they have stripped the tree I'll have to wait another 12 months to see them again. The Blackbird eats them too but not as much as the Thrush. This tree was a little tiny cutting my Dad took out of a Woods in Symonds Yat over 40 yrs ago, when I look at it  I think of Dad.......oops forgot the pics had to edit it  lol,  also the Hydrangea

Re: Lots of Berries !

The pictures are really inspiring. I plan to re-arrange my garden in the backyard next spring and I think I want to include some berry bushes, next to the vegetables and of course flowers. I  thought of getting roses, tulips and sunflowers and I have many ideas how to decorate the garden! I thought of using a flower delivery in UK because it's easy, cheap and comfy. I rarely have the time to visit the local shops.

 I put a post in the gardening room a while ago asking if lots of  holly berries meant a hard winter as my tree was full of berries too,     so it seems they're all over the place

The Holly tree in my garden has always had lots of berries on every year its the same , it must be because of the Thrush's it feeds them from Nov through to Jan. I'll miss seeing them this year, but i bet half the berries are gone by now, must ask our Mandie

The Cotoneasters in this garden have had thousands of berries on.Every one of them.Most have been dug out though still a couple left in the front and rear where the hens cant get to them.
