Cowart's Common Room
The Christmas Tree at Pondside

Uploaded Image

I enjoyed looking at the photos of Presli Mag's tree and decorations - and have exchanged Christmas tree photos with some friends. Being the curious sort, I thought I'd ask those who are willing, if they'd post photos of their Christmas tree for all to enjoy. I'd have posted this in the Christmas forum, but couldn't post a photo there. My husband is The Great Dane, and that is why our tree is festooned with flags - a Danish tradition. We use Danish flags, Swedish flags (his mother was in Sweden for his birth!) and Canadian flags.

Re:
Faith's Avatar Your tree looks very similar to ours Pondie. I'm having probs with my camera, but will try to get it sorted and post a photo.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Lovely tree, Pondside. Like Faith my camera is on the blink and I've ordered a new one from Amazon which may or may not arrive before Christmas.
Our treee is always covered with a million decorations, big and small which is just as well because this year (my fault for trying to economize) we have ended up with a tree that would not be allowed into any self-respecting conifer forest. It is all top and bottom and no middle if you see what I mean.
If the camera arrives in time I'll send you a piccie. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog!

Re:
Fab tree Pondside, and I loved the tradition of the flags. An Old CL had recently sent me a whole pile of photographs from a Xmas Tree Dressing Festival they have in their welsh village each year, were various societies dress trees to their own specific theme, and a winner is chosen. Mine should go up later this week, Will certainly try and take a picture to post.

Re:
Preseli Mags's Avatar That's such a beautiful, sophisticated tree. I love the flags. Mine has too much tinsel (and they're still adding more!) but who am I to argue with two small, but very determined little girls. Very Happy

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Anything goes on ours (though I have persuaded James that the tinsel might look better in his room!)...... Adrian has just gone off to dig ours up from a friend's woodland....though now have no idea what we'll put it in as the big planter I ussed last year has a, er, big plant in it. Duh.
I will TRY to do a pic......but don't hold your breath.....Very Happy

Cait's Avatar Here's my contribution, hope you like the fairy.
I have no room for a tree really but might get a mini something or other at the weekend. I do love trees, especially when they are lit up. Yours is so pretty Pondside.Uploaded Image

Re:
Camilla's Avatar A pretty tree Pondside, have bought tiny one this year, but no decorations on tree yet. Cannot take photo, as no digital camera, son has one though which I hope he will bring with him at Christmas.

Cait - That is such a lovely picture of Fairy.
