@clodagh smith: Cut a good one, and I will enjoy it vicariously....this year I am not putting one up, so, I'm posting lots of "Christmas" themed shots to compensate myself for the loss. ;-)

What a lovely, seasonal pattern of activity in this . . there is an almost cinematic feeling in the process-style used, too.

A fine shot of this bustling tree selling operation. I'm always suspicious of trees that get trucked him and sit in these lots for days. It seems they get pretty dry.
