Deck the halls with boughs of holly!

Well, OK, maybe not this kind of holly!!

This is some Sea Holly I went looking for in the summer. When I was little my mother used to like the Sea Holly that grew on the sand dunes of the beach on our walk to the shops.

That area has changed a lot since the early 80’s and I hadn’t seen any in recent years when I’d been back but I spotted some thisΒ summer in its old place. It had not started to turn the beautiful shades of blue at this point but I love the structure of the flower head, so delicate and silvery.
