M'Christmas tree - stop laughing please!

Go on, admit it, you're flabbergasted by my gardening prowess!

Down here at Rainbows End, I'm proud of this vegetative addition to our family.

Now, it's true, it is a bit lopsided pine-needle-wise, and has a definite lean to the right, trunk-wise,  but it's alive isn't it?! Surely I get points for that?

It's time for it's annual holidays to the warmth and mayhem that is our living room over Christmas, and it will shortly be adorned in the best plastic baubles that China can produce. No chocs though as I'm simply not strong enough to leave them to Christmas - I'd have to keep topping up with a couple of packs from the supermarket each week.

We certainly know how to live it up Chez Rainbow.
Fortunately, front on, it's quite a different kettle of onions. See? Almost plush.  This is the side that we shall look at.

The flat side will be pushed up right against the wall which means it will fit nicely on a chest of drawers.

Carefully planned of course to save space in the modern home.

Thank you Steph! I can see thousands of half trees littering the forest. They take up so much room and most of us put them in corners or against walls, so what could be better. If one was to grow them in a mixture of compost and concrete, then they wouldn't topple over either. Perfect.
Gorgeous tree - have you ever read The Good Little Christmas Tree? It is a very sweet story and beautifully illustrated - your tree is the star of it!
