For the Trees challenge - Holly.

Continuing the series of glimpses into life in Eldarion's classroom when he is a very little boy.

From the North.

“Uncle Legolas brought special bushes from his Ada’s. His Ada is a King, you know. Like my Ada.”

“Yes, Eldarion, I know. Now … our lesson?”

Secretly Firiel thought that a Northern forest kingdom would make for a very poor sort of King; not like King Ellesar.

When she saw the bushes she was even less impressed. Plain green, with no beautiful flowers, they had leaves so sharp she feared for Eldarion’s fingers.

But when, at Mettarë, the bright red holly berries brought smiles to the royal couple, Firiel was reminded that they, too, had been replanted from the North.
