Decorating a Christmas tree always brings back a lot of memories. This year we bought a 'new' tree, the first artificial tree my husband has actually ever purchased. (For years, he grew and sold real live Christmas trees.) My husband read this a while ago and asked that I mention that we also always buy a live tree for the deck outside our living room window. The birds find shelter there, and we enjoy the birds and the tree until early spring. He wants all to know that he hasn't abandoned his past.
Our tree is decorated with lots of artsy ornaments as well as bird related ornaments. Many are gifts from friends and student artists. Hope you enjoy seeing them.
