Particularly pretty possumhaw

Possumhaw with Fruit in the Woods 7201

I could show you (and have shown you as recently as January 19) close views of the dense clusters of little red drupes produced by a native tree called possumhaw, Ilex decidua. This view from farther back lets you see the beauty of a fruiting possumhaw in the landscape, namely some of the woods in Great Hills Park as they looked on February 5, 2013. To take this photograph I had to gingerly work my way down the bed of a flowing creek to get close enough for a good (but still wide-angle) view.


I’m away from home. You’re welcome to leave comments, but please understand if I’m slow in responding.
