O Christmas Tree, how brown thy branches
December 23, 2009
Last week we cut our own Christmas tree on the back 40. We’ll call it a Christmas tree, but technically, it’s a scrubby brown swamp cypress tree that was growing wild in the lane. But the price was right, and we had fun traipsing through the woods to find the prettiest scrubby tree. It looks kind of a sorry sight at first, but as the tree comes out of dormancy in the warm house, it will start to turn color – and magically turn into a green Christmas tree!
We stopped to check out the spruce trees we’ve planted way on the back 40 that will be our REAL Christmas trees in a few years – love that green!
