balsam fir

two more weeks til christmas and time to get a tree. i chose a short one for $35, then had about $15 of it cut from the bottom. its so small it fit in the back seat of my car. the bottom branches will soon adorn buckets and windowboxes. the tiny tree will be perfect on the pine box in front of the living room windows. but the best part of the day was traveling the back roads at twilight with carols on the radio and christmas lights in the little towns. and breathing in the heady scent of the balsam, all the way home.
