Here is a small tree that I bought while in Pennsylvania Dutch Country this Fall. I thought it would make a really cute Christmas Tree. What do you think? I wrapped the pot in white fleece and added a bow and some fake snow.

Looks good to me!

We have 10 acres of land. I've already located a couple of places - I want to buy about a dozen Christmas tree seedlings to plant here. Then when the grands come to visit, they can go pick out the tree to cut.

Should be very festive.


Friends divide our sorrows and multiply our joys.

Pretty sure it's a Norfolk pine... NOT from Norfolk, VA... some place tropical. These trees grow to HUGE heights... big enough for people to climb. They're cute with mini ornaments on them.

I'm a sucker for those rosemary "trees". Bought (and killed) several before finding out how to deal with them. They're trimmed to Christmas tree shape and totally root bound. Only way to save them is to IMMEDIATELY get them out of original pot, loosen up roots and plant in a much larger pot. If you let them get too dry for too long... they're toast!
