Today was decorate the tree day. It was done with a 10′ step ladder. The tree is 10′ and a Cannon Fir that we bought at a tree farm a few miles from our house. We took a wagon ride up to the fields where trees were planted, but they were all smaller than what we were looking for. It gives a little fragrance to the living room and we are hoping that it holds the needles through to the New Year. Merry Christmas everyone!
My holiday cactus thinks its holiday time already and began to blossom. I was going to throw it out and went to the sunroom to do that and discovered all these buds, so I brought it in where it was warm and this is what I got. This was my Mom’s plant and I started a new one from it which is not blossoming.
Our Japanese Maple out front is brilliant this year. It is also the last tree on the street to lose its leaves. I have so enjoyed looking out the kitchen window at it. The colors of the trees around us also are quite nice this year. What was supposed to be the peak weekend turned out to be these last two weeks instead.
