I have a picture of my growing Christmas Tree but I can’t seem to access it so we will have to do without it, although it really helps it ,to make sense so maybe I can add it later after I write this because right now I feel like writing and not figuring out how to post a picture and now WordPress has access to my google pictures and it asked if I trust w
WordPress and I have to say I don’t know for sure, it seems innocent enough and who would want to look at my pictures anyway. My left shoulder is hurting while I type. I am sure it has something to do with my posture. It hurts most of the time anyway so it doesn’t matter. I just shifted the pillow behind my back and straightened my computer on my lap so that helps.
Oh as you can see, I later found a picture of my tree and inserted it. I would like it to be with the title. We can’t have everything we want.
My tree. We bought it earlythis year because I volunteered, what was I thinking to have the office Christmas party at my house. Since the party was the Friday after Thanksgiving, I had to decorate fast. It was a beautiful sunny cold Saturday when we decided to venture out looking for a tree. We had decided to go to one of those farms where you can chop down a tree, not that we would actually do that because I am not sure we are capable of something like that, but I figured at least they would be fresh.
It took some time to drive there. It was in Ballston Lake somewhere and we had to drive down a long windy road to what seemed like nowhere until we came to a mob scene. People and cars and trees and children milling around. There was no rhyme or reason or any sense of order. We went as far as parking our car and walking to some trees just laying there, not labeled. I said “let’s get out of here” shortly after this and Rich was pretty relieved. We got in our car and left.
We ended up going to a nursery that my friend Laureen told me about. We picked out a tree and five minutes later it was strapped to the car, paid for and we were on our way home.
I was bit concerned at first because it seemed to be dropping a lot of needles right away. I had checked it at the nursery and it seemed pretty healthy. I thought it was the shock from being inside. I dutifully watered it twice a day and added the solution that you can buy to help it retain water.
It was decorated and ended up being quite shapely and actually perfect looking . People commented on its perfect shape.
One day I noticed these bright light green growths. I thought they were pine cones growing. Then I realized they were new branches growing . And these new branches were popping up everywhere in the tree in different places. Soon even the ends of the branches were budding. My tree was growing.
A miracle, I thought until I read on line that it occurs sometimes when the tree comes in the warmth and thinks it is spring. I have never seen such a thing and no one else I know has seen such a thing. It is time to take it down now. I have had it a month. I took the ornaments off and now just the lights are on. I will take it down tomorrow. I can’t plant it because there is no root ball.
I am going to take a cutting of some of the branches and try and grow a new tree.
A new miracle tree.
