Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

We had a little snow last night, which calls for, hum, very seasonal pictures.

    We just had more rain, the snow is much prettier, thank you for sharing it. I like the tree too.
    And thank you for the horse too, I have her and the card beside me.

    Oooh nice! Is that little decorated tree a living tree? Hopefully?

    One year my parents bought a live tree as a gift for my aunt and uncle. They actually brought it in the house and decorated it, but put a great big sheet over the gigantic long pot that it was planted in, and pretended like it was a regular decapitated tree. They told my aunt and uncle that they could only afford a very small tree so they had put it up higher to make it look bigger. Then on Xmas morning they swept away the sheet to reveal the actual gift, the tree itself. My aunt and uncle were thrilled; they’d just bought a house, but the builders had of course leveled the area and denuded it of any plant life before building the house, so the yard was quite literally bare of plants and certainly trees.

    Ooooh, so pretty! I’m jealous. Hopefully I will find some time this winter for a day trip to the nearest “snowy” mountain (Serra da Estrela). I miss snow.

    It was a rainy weekend here, but at least I got to see the rainbow today.

    Jazzlet, I’m glad it arrived.

    It is a live tree. The potted trees tend not to survive christmas any more than the cut ones, but I hope that if I just leave it outside and replant it in summer it will become a regular addition to the entrance area.

    The ground is lightly powdered with snow here. There may be more coming.

    It’s a very cute tree.

    Giliell about the tree, do something to make sure the roots can’t freeze and make sure it’s neither too wet nor drying out. My mother used to manage to keep trees for several years, she ‘d buy a tree and have the older boys plant it up in a large pot, then keep it reasonably moist while it was inside. The tree was planted outside as soon as possible after twelfth night, next year it was dug up and bought inside, repeat as long as the tree was small enough. Mum then used to have the top cut off and that was used for the last year, we had plenty of trees so she didn’t want to keep the trees permanently. I think one of the reasons this worked was because the drawing room wasn’t that warm except when there were people in there, I’m not at all sure it would be so easy in a house heated to more modern standards of comfort.
