As far as your holly goes, if you would like to submit a photo of it, you can do so at http://www.bhg.com/photos/gardening/flowers/ and then just share the URL of your photos with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most holly plants are either male or female (just like people). Only the female varieties can make berries --- so to get fruits, you'll have to have both a male and a female in your yard. Unfortunately, if you don't know what variety it is, it's very hard to know if it's male or female. The only way to know is to examine the flowers with a magnifying glass when they bloom in the spring and see if they have male or female reproductive organs.
