Getting Ready for Christmas

Boxes to family so far away have been mailed (and received!), both of the Christmas trees are up, and tonight we are going to the New Bedford Symphony’s Christmas concert.  The holiday is upon us!  We did a bare branch tree this year in addition to the regular tree; we were inspired by a tree in the German room at the Highfield Hall Christmas display this year.  It’s great for displaying handmade ornaments.  German Xmas TreeEvery year I make a handmade ornament to give to close friends that we see only once a year.  This year I was inspired by the beautiful red Boletus bicolor to make a mushroom ornament. It looks ever so Christmasy on the tree.
