  6. I'm ashamed to admit, I knew what holly was, I've seen these berries many times, but I didn't know they were the fruits.
    I don't like blueberries, so luckily I've never tried them, of course I won't try them.
    Regards

  8. I remember being warned as a kid. I think they were growing in our flower bed when we moved in, but we didn't think that plant could grow here. We did get rid of the plant as a precaution. Thanks for the post!
