There are pages of mythology attached to mistletoe, a word coming from the old English, misteltãn. Apparently the ancient Greeks believed the plant had once offended the gods, who condemned it thereafter to have to look on whilst pretty girls were being kissed. So there you have it. Happy Christmas folks…..and happy kissing!
Fritillaria meleagris or Snakeshead fritillary. Three colour gum bichromate print on watercolour paper.
Raul Conde Vila, tree expert at Wisley, standing next to a Giant Redwood. This shows the scale of the tree, which measures over 5 metres around the base, indicating an age of approximately 100 years. The lower photo is a Metasequoia glyptostroboides or Dawn redwood. A prehistoric tree thought extinct, but discovered growing in China in 1943. Currently classified as endangered.
Nice to see one of my shots from last Christmas on the poster for the RHS Wisley Christmas Glow 2017 display.
