Three short stories: a magical tale about Christmas; a man who loves wasp nests is forced to arrange an extermination; and a retired man finds real happiness with his grandchildren.

In 'Nay, Ivy, Nay', a mean old mycologist, who has fostered a beautiful white holly tree, denies his neighbour a sprig.

In 'Wasps' Nest', will the wasp nest survive the pest controller?

In 'Windfalls', picking up the windfall apples with his grandson and remembering his own son as a boy brings Martin true contentment.

Part of the Storycuts series, these three stories were previously published in the collection The Atmospheric Railway.
