Christmas Tree Tradition – Creating Memories Fresh-Cut Christmas Trees

Christmas Tree Tradition – Creating Memories Fresh-Cut Christmas Trees
For many years, a part of our family Christmas tree tradition included shopping for a fresh-cut Christmas tree. We’d load the family in the pick-up truck and head out to find a reasonably priced cut pine. It was usually bitter cold and the heat in the truck never seemed to work properly, but we didn’t care. We were young and filled with the adventure of finding the perfect Christmas tree. Nothing Beats That Pine Tree Smell Of course, there is no such thing as a perfect Christmas tree. At least, not on our budget. There were toys to buy and presents for extended family members. If we could pick up a decent fresh-cut Christmas tree for a couple hours salary, we were doing good. I love the way a real tree imparts that fresh pine scent throughout the house. It’s not that artificial toilet bowl type of … Read More

Grow Yourself A Norfolk Pine Christmas Tree

Grow Yourself A Norfolk Pine Christmas Tree
Decorating for Christmas is one of my great joys. I have outdoor displays as well as indoor décor. A Christmas tree has rarely featured in my holiday décor because I can’t condone cutting trees and composting them, nor do I like the appearance of plastic and wire fake trees. However, one year that all changed. Christmas Tree Alternatives I love Home Depot. This isn’t a plug for them, just a comment. The place has everything a DIY champion needs and is fairly reasonable. Their plants are featured prominently in my home exterior and interior. One of my favorites is a Norfolk Island pine. It was an impulse purchase around the holidays several years ago and was sadly sprayed with some glitter stuff. Over the next couple of years, I babied the plant as it lost stems and needles covered in the toxic junk. It is now in its third … Read More

Deciding On Evergreen Plants – No Evergreens In The Garden Here
If you have read my blog before, then you know I live in the Pacific Northwest. No, not in Seattle (anymore) but the other side of the state, the side with wide temperature swings. Regardless, it will come as some surprise to some of you that I have nary a single evergreen in the landscape. It isn’t that I dislike evergreens in the garden; in fact, they are fabulous additions, especially when fall has come and gone and everything else in the landscape is bare. They add nice living green color (or gold or blue) when all the other plants are arrayed in varying dirty hues, and they give some height and backbone to a garden. Choosing an Evergreen Isn’t Easy So why have I not included at least one specimen? It’s simple. I can’t make up my mind. There are so many fabulous evergreen plants out there, but … Read More

Favorite Evergreens I’ve Lived With, Loved And Learned From

Favorite Evergreens I’ve Lived With, Loved And Learned From
To me, a garden without evergreens is incomplete. I grew up with evergreens and have loved their strength and beauty all my life. Here are three of my favorite evergreens, the evergreen trees I have lived with, loved and learned from.  Alaska Spruce Growing up in Alaska, I thought evergreen meant spruce. I was born in a small town in central Alaska where the temperatures drop to extremes that people have a hard time believing. Let’s just put it this way – when temps dipped to negative 65 below zero, they cancelled school. We could count on at least two weeks off for “cold days” every winter. Above the arctic circle, there are no trees, but in central Alaska, spruce forests thrive. These are smaller spruce than you are used to seeing, no taller than 15 or 20 feet tall, stunted by the weather. The ground soil is permanently … Read More
