The last few days I've noticed everyone's Christmas Trees lined up in tree lawns waiting for the city to pick them up an take'm in to the big compost pile. I still have my tree up and probably will for two more weeks. To me, the Christmas Tree is more of a winter plant or ornament in the house. I nudge it together with another indoor plant and a bundle of sticks bound in a corner. My cat hides under it. I've actually moved it three times this week to see where I like it best.
I think we are only using the "Christmas Tree" for about 1/3 of its potential usefulness. And so, seeing all these gorgeous trees laying about has kind of sprung me into action to find ways to use them.
This week, and, well, until the trees run out, I'm going to spend a couple hours each day trying to reappropriate these trees to generate some positive things around the neighborhood.
