    An explosion of Christmas trees! Bet it smells good.

      It does smell good, but the full effect comes when it is brought inside, in a warm house. It happens that people burn a tiny part of a spruce branch, to get the good smell in the house. I can´t help also seeing it as a pity to cut down so many trees, but it obviously isn´t the right moment to start philosophizing about that. Perhaps they like to be Christmas trees.

        Christmas trees are a crop Around Here, sort of like cherries and apples and potatoes and corn. I don’t suppose they enjoy becoming Christmas trees any more than the pig enjoys becoming bacon. Ah well. Eventually all of us are recycled.

        My friend Ann Zukowski goes into the woods each year to find a recently-toppled tree. (There are quite a few of them, as we live in a place of many mature trees and many snow- and windstorms.) Annie saws off the top, drags it home for Christmas, and after the festivities brings it back to where she found it so that it can return to the earth. I admire her ingenuity.

          Oh, that is a good idea, to find a tree and to bring it back. It solves many problems at the same time. Here, it is slowly becoming ordinary for the salesmen to promise that they will take the tree back after use, I think IKEA was one of the first with that idea.

    I will be going out this weekend to find our tree. No cutting this time as the nursery still needs to recover from the previous few years. They bring them down from the Adirondacks.

      The Adirondacks looks like a nice place, I watched an advert at a website, – it reminds a lot about Norway and Sweden. Hope you find a beautiful tree. 🙂

    We haven’t had a ‘real’ Christmas tree for a long time… But I vividly remember the wonderful fragrance of the pine needles indoors – but also the endless battle with the needes and little twigs getting dry and falling all over the carpet and needing to be cleaned up every day. Christmas falls during the middle of summer here.

    So now we have a plastic tree, which we re-use every year; I know it’s not a real tree, but we love it nonetheless, and so it’s become part of this special time with family and loved ones. 🙂

      Yes, the needes can be a problem in no time, but it depends of the tree. There are different types, some can keep the needes for months, some only for a week, but of course everything looks different in a warm summer. There is something called a Christmas tree carpet, which is to use under the tree. Would you like to see:
