O Tannenbaum suffers a casualty

I did it. I put up the tree by myself. I even cut the 1” off the trunk too!

I did suffer a casualty. I castrated the tree. I didn’t mean to. I was moving it and I guess I was a bit too rough.

If you want to know if there is a difference from a corner stand tree and a tree from a tree farm, its freshness. This sucker was damp, sappy and the needles didn’t fall off when you pull a branch. Of course, freshness also means that Tanny drinks more water than any other tree I’ve had. The first night I refilled the 1 ½ gallon trough 3 times!

It’s fully fallen now so now I begin decorating it now.

Now I have to get my butt in gear with the wrapping.
