Curious Christmas Tree Creations

One of the perks of living in southeast Pennsylvania is the close proximity of two world class gardens – Longwood Garden and Winterthur Estate and Garden. The Christmas season really brings out the best in both gardens.  Every year, the bar is raised on the complexity and beauty of the holiday displays. If you can budget the time both gardens are well worth a visit during this season.

My favorite holiday exhibit  showcases evergreen trees decorated with hand made ornaments created by grade schoolers.  There is such a carefree joy to these trees that never fails to bring holiday cheer when I view them.  This year was no exception, although, I did notice a few curious looking ornaments that I’d like to share with my dear readers and lurkers.

The first one I don’t know quite what to make of it, other than the vaguely creepy feeling I get when viewing this felt ornament:

Curious Ornament

The gingerbread ornaments were really cute, then I spied this curious fellow. I see shades of cubism in this ornament – perhaps the child that created this will be another Picasso?

Gingerbread..Something

After viewing the children’s trees, I walked through the rest of the Conservatory and found the perfect Christmas tree:

Alyssum and Orange Christmas Tree

A tree composed of Sweet Alyssium, moss, and oranges. It smelled heavenly and there was no need to string lights or hang ornaments, making it the perfect Christmas tree. I really wanted to take this tree home but the horticulturists frown on such activity, so I settled for a photograph.

Has anyone else found curious ornaments on trees? Share your story in the comment section.

    I remember when in Bill Clinton’s White House they hung crack pipes and condoms on the Christmas Tree. That was pretty unusual.

    I imagine Obama’s team has found better use for the crack pipes.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
