Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree....

Here is a new, LIVE Christmas tree.

Something different this year and this specimen is one that will grow with us. It is a native Australian plant, the Daintree Pine. It is a rare native from the World Heritage Forests of Far North Queensland.

They keep a beautiful, traditional Christmas tree shape without the need of pruning and it will thicken and grow as the years go by, giving it a beautiful vibrancy in the advent/christmas season as long as we look after it well enough the rest of the year round!

It might not be strong enough to hold electric lights this year but we intend to put our Jesse Tree images and hopefully other light decorations. After reading the Cobweb Christmas: The Tradition of Tinsel, we would like to find some light, tinsel-like decorations in gold or silver... I hope to get a nice pot for our Daintree and have the pot overbriming with pinecones for extra effect.

It will all be happening soon...
