|Found Greens for a Holiday Arrangement|
One year I used an inverted tomato cage to fasten cut greens together to make a tree. One year we acquired the top of a fir tree that some friends had cut down. Another time I purchased a tall skinny potted juniper which we decorated with Mardi Gras beads, then planted outside by the sun room.
I gave all my mother's tree ornaments to my sister-in-law to pass on to her kids, so we have no tree decorations (actually we have some bells, baubles, and trinkets we've acquired here and there that can hang on a tree). We've used sumac and flowers for ornaments, and ribbons, and things we got on packages, and of course, Mardi Gras beads.
This year I found this fir tree growing in the woods just beyond our property line. It was being crowded out by other larger trees, so I didn't feel too bad about off-ing it for our Un-Traditional tree this year.
We're not sure how or if we will decorate it.
