    I can see mistletoe everywhere, too, in the canopies of trees that line a spring-fed stream. Even in town, if you look up while you are sitting at a traffic light, I bet you’ll see some. It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness. 
    As a child I thought it was some sort of exotic plant that my grandmother was able to acquire special for the holidays, sort of like poinsettias.
