  1. Do people still kiss under the mistletoe? πŸ˜•

    1. Heyjude says:

      I wouldn’t know! Haven’t seen it hanging up in years!

      1. Me too. The last I got kissed under it, was by someone I had never wanted to kiss me. πŸ˜•

      I noticed bunches being sold on the market today so I guess people do still hang up bunches.

  2. I’ve never been kissed under mistletoe, but I have been kissed awkwardly and recently under the tristania in the supermarket car park in Moruya. J was prompted by a Kenneth Slessor poem: “the Tristania tree / where we had kissed so awkwardly / noted by swans with damp accusing eyes”. The tree and the awkward kiss were there, but no swans, although the black swan is Moruya’s icon.

    I like the luminosity of your berries, and the palette of greens.

      Awkwardly and recently made me smile πŸ™‚ Shame about the swans…

    I should buy some, I might get lucky! oops just corrected a typo it said licky!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Haha… I quite like licky πŸ™‚ Though it does conjure up a dog or a horse! Not what you were intending.
