I love holly, it reminds me of my grandmother. Her given name was Gladys, and her sister's name was Mildred. Both ladies hated their names and referred to each other as Sis. As kids, her son called my grandmother Aunt Sis, and my brother and I called her Aunt Sis. Their maiden name was Hollinger, and so Grandma went by Holly her entire adult life. So much so that my dad thought her given name was Holly!
When my grandfather and she bought their last home together in California, he planted holly shrubs all around the front of it. The waxy dark green leaves with their spiky edges will always make me think of summers with Grandma, trying to catch lizards that occasionally darted under them, and ginger snaps.
