Merry Christmas

My April cannot stand the idea of cutting a living tree for Christmas, so a few years ago we did this solution. A driftwood tree made up of driftwood collected on many adventures. It is not decorated yet, this year, icicle lights and snowflakes will be going on it. We like keeping it extremely simple.

MY ALLERGIES PREVENT ME FROM HAVING A LIVE TREE NOW AND I AM QUITE PLEASED WITH THE ARTIFICIAL TABLETOP TREE I BOUGHT SEVERAL YEARS AGO. ONCE THE LIGHTS AND DECORATIONS ARE ON, IT LOOKS LIKE THE REAL THING AND I DO NOT FEEL GUILTY WHEN I PUT IT BACK IN THE BOX ON JANUARY 2.

What a wonderful idea!

I used to get living trees and plant them after Christmas, but then the bagworms came in and took out all my evergreens and almost killed my Bald Cypress along with them. Now I just have an artificial tree I use every year. Better than nothing.

It's not your phone causing the problem, it's the site. Try doing this instead of going to add a picture first. After you write your blog put this below your last sentence, [image]. Then go to where you add a picture and click on it, select the pic and it will load correctly. If you want another image, you can write another sentence, or just put [image] in again and your next pic should load underneath the first one.
