Shades of Green ― Hollies

These holly leaves remind me of sea creatures.

This post continues a series about the color green. Glossy English Holly leaves, (Ilex aquifolium) in shades of kelly, yellow-and blue-green, impart a vibrant, happy energy. According to folklore, nine holly leaves gathered on a Friday after midnight, wrapped in a clean cloth to protect against its needles, and tied up using nine knots was placed under a pillow to make dreams come true.
