Possumhaw tree

The berries are on the Possumhaw throughout the winter. Although it looks like a tree, it's really a holly bush. I used to keep cut branches is a vase, but the berries end up all over the place.
It has been very windy the past week, or more. I is not easy to sketch in the wind. You have an inherent reaction to stiffen against the breeze, which opposes the delicate movements of making lines on paper.
