Here Comes Trouble

Deck the halls and trim the tree. Literally, I trimmed the tree this year.
Where have all the Charlie Brown Christmas trees gone? Every tree on the lot this year….perfectly symmetrical cones of evergreen, no little nooks for hanging ornaments or glimpses of textured bark.
Camellias, I was once told, should be thinned until "you can throw a cat through it." Well, I'm applying the same practice to my tree….except maybe just a hamster.
Trimmed….and trimmed with ornaments.
Despite my efforts, Mischief and Mayhem are much more interested in the train shadowed by our thinned out tree.
Toot toot, Christmas is right around the corner.
