    Got to love the aloe tree. All really nice and hard to pick a favorite but I think mine would have to be the tree trimmed in blue.

    Hi Bill,
    Sorry I missed this post until now. Thanks for taking the time to share They are all beautiful, and will certainly get you into the Holiday Spirit.
    Question; If you know, what is the plant they used to make the tree in your very first photo ? Is it some kind of Agavae?
    Happy Holidays.

    Enjoyed the photos Bill. The Christmas Trees are wonderful, but what really stands out to me is those near perfect looking blue Hydrangeas. There a favorite of mine. Saw alot of them in Oregon where they grow like weeds with little cultivation, but never this neatly and flawless looking. Happy Holidays to you all! AL
