Leave the Real One Far Behind
And so it came to pass that all things Christmas had to be removed from the living area.
I was quite fond of the tree, and I really wish It had roots, and I would have dug a hole for it (not in the allotment mind).
As it is, he is standing outside, in his watering pot, secured the edge of the garden with a bench and another pot. He's sitting next to the tree from 2002 (I think, that is a guess)... He did have roots and he was planted in various pots around the garden before we stuck him in the ground 6 years ago.
He didn't grow much and we thought he was about to keel, but then in the last two years he has taken a spurt. I'm kind of the opinion that if I sit them next o each other one will inspire the other and despite the lack of roots on 2016, I think he might be inspired to create some :-)
Meanwhile, I sit in a state of agitated readiness to get back to work tomorrow... there is soooo much work to be done and I'm ready to get going.
