HOMAGE TO THE HETZI HOLLY

'Inspirations from a Back Yard'
'Homage to the Hetzi Holly'
Oil 5 x 7
This ia a simple study of a sprig from the Japanese
Hetzi Holly that grows at the back corner of my
house. I planted this bush over 18 years ago,
and this year is the first time it produced berries.
Now, I do realize that this most likely happened because
someone in the area planted a male of this
species, but that does not take away the thrill
I got when I noticed all of these wonderful
bluish-black berries covering this holly!
Can't wait to see some snow on them * * *
