O, Christmas Tree…O, Christmas Tree, How Lovely Are Thy Branches.
A friend sent me the most adorable Christmas tree (actually not a tree, it’s made from fresh sprigs) from Lynch Creek Farm this week and it really blew me away. First of all, it smelled amazing. Fresh fir and eucalyptus. Next, it was just so pretty. It came with ornaments and a beautiful bow, as well as a little string of battery operated lights. It is adorable!
So, while we are close to the holidays, this is one of those great things that was worth sharing because they do wreaths, garlands and other arrangements from their family farm in Washington state. I’m filing this idea away for next year! Evergreens are ancient symbols of strength, protection, prosperity, and long life in the midst of winter. Wishing you all those things this holiday season and beyond!
