Holly trees at the Richardson Preserve signal the approach of the holiday season

After a night of rain, sleet, and snow, the Richardson Nature Preserve glistened on a December morning in 2019.  An American holly tree is in the foreground.  The red berries, found only on female trees, provide food for many birds.
