‘I spy with my little eye.’
What is the top right photo? Mistletoe, of course. 🙂 A MI friend spotted it and led me there to take a look. Never, in all my life, have I thought about where mistletoe grows, but grow it does on mostly pecan, hickory, oaks, red maple, and black gum trees. Mistletoe is considered a parasite and often kills its host tree. There are 36 species in the US and Canada, it is often called a witches’ broom, and can grow 5′ wide and weigh up to 50 lbs.
Those facts would make great trivia questions, but let’s not go there. I filled in for a friend on a trivia team last week, and let’s just say it was quite humbling.
This group is never far from food, so last week provided opportunities to participate in a ladies’ luncheon, pot luck supper, and a country club brunch.
I’m working on a fabric landscape piece right now at the sewing machine having finished gifts for the March ladies luncheon. When I complete the landscape, a Christmas tree to hang on the wall is up next.
What’s up for you this last week in February. By the way, where did February go?
