Mistletoe - a Christmas Herb
Read an excerpt from Mistletoe Man by author Susan Whittig Albert.
At Thyme and Seasons, I buy mistletoe from a local supplier and Laurel and I package it in plastic bags tied with festive holiday ribbons. During the Christmas season, we process hundreds of mail and telephone and email orders for the herb, which grows in basketball-sized clumps on the hackberry and pecan trees in the wooded hills to the west of Pecan Springs. Once you’ve seen those fresh yellow-green leaves and translucent berries, glowing like huge pearls, you can understand why our mistletoe is so popular.—Mistletoe Man: A China Bayles Mystery

A great little read on this cold, blustery day!
