Look what I saw today in the supermarket, and so I took a photo. It was then that I heard the assistant who works in the gardening department say “excuse me” talking to me. I turned and she said that she just wanted to ask why I take photos of the flowers in her store. The manager apparently saw me and was wondering. I told her I take them for a Web site I am active in on the computer, but if there was a problem, I would naturally no longer take any photos (thought I would be brave about it 🙂 ) She was very nice and said in that case, there is absolutely no problem – so we departed friends and I continued taking photos. Did they think I wanted to kidnap a few flowers and hold them to ransom?
Anyhow I got away with my mistletoe photo, ready for Christmas and a few others. I suppose most of you know that mistletoe is actually a parasite and if the seeds arrive on a tree trunk they will grow their roots into the tree and begin to expand, with the result of a normal tree with mistletoe growing out of it. I live in mistletoe country it seems, and on an avenue near where I live there are many trees with mistletoe growing on them – see photo. So if you want to kiss someone, all you have to do is take a walk along the street and stand under the tree – the mistletoe works the magic.
