It’s name has changed, in my mind at least, to the giving tree. It’s true we do adorn a pine tree with shiny bulbs during the Christmas season, but I think the trees give us beauty all year long.
A stunning green backdrop against a stark white winter.
A twinkling bright steady monument while sticks of brown begin to bud in spring.
A gorgeous array of multi green splendor in the summer sun.
The darkest shade of fall color set as an anchor with bursting orange, yellow and red surrounding them.
Remember the real meaning of Christmas is Christ’s birth which blesses us each day, not the decorations we unpack once a year.
