I used to worry that mistletoe brought death to trees. Now I know it brings life to forests.
Since 1794 there has been a place in Sydney on the Parramatta River known as Kissing Point, where Governor Hunter kissed his wife. Kissing Point and the long Kissing Point Road that crosses several suburbs. All not far from Hunters Hill where I used to live, between the Parramatta and Lane Cove Rivers.
Here in the Upper Hunter River Valley, this lovely pom pom of mistletoe is on a long bush track over the mountain from our place to Springvale. Kiss Me. Kismet.
