Crimson’s Creative Challenge #202 #Fatal beauty

I don’t really know a lot about trees

but I feel that I might recognise these leaves

as you stroll through the countryside

just cast your eyes up to the skies

and if you are in a grove of apple trees

you may see in the branches clumps of these

and just in case you still don’t know

it’s a parasite plant we call mistletoe

once sacred to the Druids nowadays this is

the one to stand under if you want to be kissed

    I enjoyed your take on the photo prompt.

  2. Excellent, Bobby
    Though I might point out that while Druids revered mistletoe growing on apple or oak, I’ve found mistletoe growing on willow, ash, poplar, lime and, as here, hawthorn. Those birds, they’ll plant the berries anywhere
