Tree Time

It's that time of year again. This is where we have historically cut down our trees.

Here are two of my trees from last year.

This is one of the other ones. I usually put up 7 or 8 trees. So far this year I am totally uninspired. Maybe it's because I have the worst cold I've had in twenty years. Or maybe it's because it is warm and raining.

So yesterday I ended up here.

I love blue spruce trees but they are very sharp and hard to decorate. So, this year I went for Frazier Firs. The only thing that can compete with being surrounded by pumpkins is being surrounded by evergreens.

They had beautiful wreathes and swags decorated with pine cones and juniper berries.

And you get a free bag of apples when you buy a tree.

All you do is pick out your tree. They carry them and wrap them in netting and tie them to your car.

They have a measuring pole so you can get the height right.

Much simpler than lying on the wet ground and cutting the trees down yourself.

They also had an enormous selection.

Before you select your apples you can try the different varieties to see what you like best.

Loaded and ready to go.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with it. If I get inspired I will head back to the tree farm when I feel better and cut more trees down. It is tradition after all.
