  1. I had to go back and re-read Mistletoe! This was just to reassure myself that the obligate parasites’ you explained was not a reference to my children. I should be kinder, aftrawl it is Christmas.

      1. Oh yes and quiet too.
        on another note; is it true that Mistletoe will only grow on Oak and Apple trees? if it is, I wonder why.

      2. How curious. I think I will have to do some research of my own to discover more about this plant. I remember as a kid going tp an apple orchard in Easter Compton just off the road to Severn Beach cutting Mistletoe for Christmas. Maybe I was a Druid in a former life cutting it with a golden sickle for Yule.
