A Little Treat

Some weeks back while fishing I noticed this lovely fir tree. While taking a photo of it i thought this little tree would look good decorated. Being there are only wild creatures about I said the decorations must be edible. Well yesterday morning while the turkey was roasting Jeanette and I began stringing garlands of natural popcorn, cranberries, walnuts, and suet balls to decorate the little tree.

We also had a few pumpkins that we were going to bust up and an apple or 2 or 5.




This morning in the gray-drizzle Jeanette and I along with our grand-daughter Morgan walked along a path to where the tree was. When we arrived at the chosen tree Morgan and Jeanette strung the garlands and suet balls. The pumpkins were then smashed and placed along the bottom of the tree.


It's a little treat for our wild friends.

  1. Brk Trt, what a nice thing to do! The natural wild nature supplies us with great thoughts & memories thru out the years, a little appreciation is always nice to see & hear about once in a while. I'd be curious how long they'll be there before they're eaten? Happy holidays to you & yours.........Phil

      Phil that tree looked so empty, we just had to do something, I'm sure the wildlife appreciates. As far as how long it will be there I don't know.

  7. That little patch of trees has always made me wonder. I don't think they're all the same. Could it be that someone planted them?

      Rowan I never paid much attention to that. But now that you mention it I think someone may have planted them.

  11. A wonderful and thoughtful Thanksgiving and early Christmas gift for all the wild creatures and Nature herself.

    'God rest ye merry, gentlemen
    Let nothing you dismay
    Remember, Christ, our Saviour
    Was born on Christmas day
    To save us all from Satan's power
    When we were gone astray
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy"

    Happy Thanksgiving and early Christmas Greetings to everyone.
    Cheers,

    Steve.

  13. That's some good family time right there, Alan. I think that it's super cool that you also used edible items as decorations. Good thinking!
