    Used to have a yearly "Christmas trees from around the world" exhibit up around my folks. Don't think its done anymore. Pity ... I always liked seeing the different styles, ornaments, and themes.

    Such a joy to see Norway spruce (Picea abies) taken seriously! For me it is the only real Christmasmas tree... here in England various firs (Abies spp) have totally taken over. Fir trees for Xmas have advantages: they are greener, fuller, prettier, and they don't shed their needles everywhere! BUT they are just not the same... and they smell wrong- if at all.

    I am aware that I must sound like a real CRANK! On the other hand, over here until very recently you sounded really prissy if you said "Norway spruce"- you simply said "Chtistmasmas tree"! Where is the world of my youth?

    I feel like 1000!

    All the shades of pink are super. I particularly like the lilies in the first photo. What a nice way to have spent the day.
