toyon, a red-berried plant with evergreen leaves of a rounder shape. I've spent a fair amount of time searching on the web with no luck. I don't know what words to use in my search string: "red berries," "pointy red leaves," "red stems," etc.; these are getting me nowhere. Any clues?
I'd fill my house with these berries if they weren't so much prettier outside where they belong.
Boz is having eye surgery today. He has a corneal ulcer--a sore cornea that won't heal on its own and has to be treated surgically. I wasn't going to post about it but damn it, I feel bad and I want to say so. I don't feel nearly as bad as Boz is going to feel when the anaesthetic wears off. He's an innocent creature and I can't explain to him why I'm leaving him alone at that scary place where he was fine when he went in and in pain when he came out.
Boz doesn't care as much for colors as I do. He doesn't see the berries as red. I don't think he cares about berries at all.
