But I think the most fascinating of all is the Mistletoe - quite a plant oddity with a lot of myths and tradition associated with it. The site below gives a great synopsis of this plant...

    Oh, thank you for sharing that. It brings back memories of my childhood when my Dad would point up in the tree and tell us to look at the mistletoe.
