In the Shade of the Old Oak Tree.
This little one foot high holly is several years old; I assume that its growth is somewhat stunted due to its being snuggled up against the oak tree. There won’t be much room for its own roots down there, neither will there be much food for it though, this being Scotland, there won’t be any shortage of water.
Thanks are due to TheAphid for hosting this week’s Mono Monday challenge with the theme of "shady.” I think this just about qualifies. The colour version is the extra.
I’ve just posted yesterday’s, “Wet Grass.”
