It's Christmas!

This year I decided to use my two-year-old Norfolk Island Pine as a live Christmas tree. I bought this 8 inch tall plant from Ikea, had it planted in a container and now it has about 8 tiers. It is not very tall but I thought that it should suffice for this year.


 Well, next year it will be different as I planned to be more diligent in applying nutrients and molly coddle it for the next 12 months.
 
This plain, chocolatey moth flew and rested on a leaf next the colourful tinsels.

It scrambled around for a while and then laid motionless, which to all appearances has become part of the tree ornaments.


Santa visited this bird nest of three baby birds.

 
Tasha was also enomoured of the ornamented tree.

This huge wooden dog door stopper present a merry welcome to guests.
 
This Dracaena draco houseplant was tarted up for the occasion.

Dried home-grown bamboo stems are used as props for these ornaments, some of which are decades old.

Wishing you a joyous Christmas!
