The group of us from Patchwork made our annual pilgrimage to the reclaimed strip mine land in search of Christmas trees a couple weekends ago. This year wasn’t quite as action-packed as last year with its wild trapper and dead beaver.
Still, despite the dampness it was a good day to be out looking for trees.
John and I found a nice tree. It wasn’t too big this year! It had nice red tints and a good shape.
We got it decorated the next day so we’ll get plenty of enjoyment out of it. And we put out the nativity set for our cat Shamoo, since he seems to enjoy a holiday ritual of sitting in the middle of the nativity along with the wise men, shepherd, and sheep.
I spent a little time in my garden over the weekend. I enjoyed the beauty of the Bleak Midwinter.
