  13. We put up a fresh live tree each year. Ours come from a wonderful family-owned business called the Very Merry Christmas Tree Farm. This year we bought ours three days after it was cut. The wonderful fragrance still fills the house, a month after we put it up. I always enjoy your blog and wish you the very best in 2015. Happy gardening!

  16. I was just as excited about the Winter Solstice as Christmas for just the reason you said Tatyana!! I can't wait for some longer days, the darkness is not my thing at all. Love your holiday images and what a business the tree farm is. We don't have any here but I wish we could just go and get a truly fresh cut tree. The real trees sold in the lots here are so dry, they are scary. It's the reason I switched to artificial but I miss the smell and freshness of a live tree. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas & Happy 2015 to you!!! Looking forward to seeing more of your outstanding photos & garden in the New Year.

  19. I am late, but I hope you had a merry Christmas, and I wish you a happy new year. Thank you for posting the pros and cons of real vs. artificial Christmas trees. In my previous job selling fresh cut trees was how we ended our year at the garden center, and it was a very important part of our business. I would add that on this side of the country most of the trees are grown in the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia, in places that could use any economic boost that does not harm the land.
