After coming down from Mount Nanos with friends and family I was introduced to a Mistletoed Oak in a nearby village. It was the first time I had seen Mistletoe growing wild, and was surprised to see that the berries were yellow. Truly Golden Boughs.
The Oak was still bare of its own greenery, the only life that could be seen was the green and gold of its mistletoe guest.
A nice National Geographic article describing Mistletoe as a ‘Keystone to forest health’ can be found here,
