The Tree

Every year, for several years now we have purchased/chosen a live Christmas tree. The smell of pine needles has become one of those tangible memories for the children of this time of the year. we like to choose our tree as close to Christmas as possible to be able to enjoy it for as long as possible. This year we thought we might not manage it. One place told us that due to the drought they had completely sold out of their very limited supply. We checked out petrol stations, fruit and veg. shops but we couldn't find one just right. Then a place in the hills said they had some .They also mentioned the drought affecting their trees particularly the taller ones and we were pretty worried we might not find "our tree" when we saw these ones!

And below is the tree we chose! pretty neat eh!
