When once so beautifully adorned and admired by all who entered the room in which it stood, now left in the cold, cold pavement.
May’s comment: It is such a sorry sight – lacklustre trees discarded on pavements, piled up, ready to be taken away. The sight of them is enough to bring a tear to one’s eye.
As much as I love a real tree there are just so many things to think about. We live in a flat. The thought of hauling one up the stairs and even worse, taking it down when all the needles are falling off or it. And trying to keep it well-watered in a heated flat.
So as much as I have thought of getting a real tree every year, I have come to appreciate our little stand-by LED-lit tree. But it too has gone into storage.
