Festival of Trees - Part One

I haven't gotten it together quite enough to participate in the Geneabloggers I Remember Christmas! Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories.  That's OK, my holiday gift to myself is to forgive myself for this blunder and move forward.

Taj Mahal: the real thing.

Instead, over the next weeks, I'll share my photos of this year's local Festival of Trees.  The Festival lasts for three days, the weekend after Thanksgiving.  There are hundreds of trees:  traditional, artistic, funky, tall, short.  There are also wreaths and gingerbread houses.  The sponsor is a local children's hospital; they plan the event all year long.  I'm told that people come from all over the Eastern Seaboard to attend!  I didn't take photos of everything, just my favorites.   These are definitely my favorites in this category...certainly not your grandma's gingerbread house!

 All photos are mine except where noted.

  1. "To forgive myself..." That's probably the best holiday gift you could receive!
