Christmas Tree

It's that time of the year again! When people say "Christmas is just around the corner", it literally is, because time flies so fast. As the year draws to a close, the silly season arrives only to fly out of the window again, hence us mortals who revel in its presence must make the most of it while it lasts!

Part of the tradition is putting up the Christmas tree. Having grown up in south-east asia, the concept of a Christmas tree was that of a plastic, triangular pine tree that is taken out of the box together with the rest of the lovely, colorful trinkets, and of course the huge star to be lodged on top.

This year, in light of all things new and different, a small tree was purchased instead of a big "real" coniferous creature that has been cut down. This one is a Picea Glauca Albertiana Conica, a dwarf spruce.



Hopefully this tree will see more of Silly Seasons in the future, as it will eventually find its place somewhere in the garden, to be tended with the rest of the greens!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
