On the corner of 65th and Palatine Avenue North in Seattle‘s Phinney Ridge district, there lies a quaint wooden house with a gnarled old plum tree outside; its branches spreading out and draping down low. This is no ordinary tree. Like other noble trees, it changes with the season, but this tree has expanded the idea and changes with the holidays also. It is known by locals as the Holiday Tree and today my friend Jo whisked me away to take a look at its most recent reincarnation.
I couldn’t resist stopping by later in the evening to see the little tree all decked out and lit up with the teeniest tiniest of rosebud lights.
That happy and well-loved tree warmed the cockles of my heart, no pun intended. Have you seen any unusual Valentine’s Day decorations in your part of the world?
