holiday finery

is there anything more forlorn than an unadorned fir tree during the holidays? possibly, perhaps even probably...but it ranks near the top end of the list...the arborvitae in the garden was looking very seasonal yesterday and this morning ( top photo ) so the decision was taken to decorate ( the next four photos, from garland through icicle ornaments ) and the deed is done...we would encourage anyone who would care to add to the ornamentation to do so as they please so long as it is in keeping with the holiday tradition...the decorations will come down after orthodox christmas ( because my grandmother was orthodox and that was the tradition in my family )...if you want to preserve anything you add please remove it by then, otherwise it will be stowed away for 2015...thanks.
