Emma and I popped out to the Christmas Tree Farm today for their Christmas in July event.
I have no photos because it was a dreary, drizzly day and we needed all hands available for hot pork sausages in bread with lashings of onion and buckets of hot hazelnuts and umbrellas and a little Chihuahua tucked up in Emma's coat too.
Thank goodness a young helper was on hand to take us over the paddock and count the rows and remember the trees as we criss-crossed and short listed.
What fun though!
I can definitely jump puddles in my new gum boots.
The children had made lovely salt dough decorations and I added a couple of doves to my decorations for this year.
My tree will sit and grow and have another pruning or two and I will be able to collect it in December.
I know it's a bit early to be thinking of Christmas but I have started my "inspiration" board on pintrest for this years' theme as I plan to make my own decorations this year so I will need to start getting a bit organised now because I always run out of time in summer when the garden and preserving is taking precedence in our hemisphere.
This year the theme is natural and you can see some of the ideas I have found
(Lots of children friendly crafting ideas too)
Don't forget the give away this month will be drawn at the end of July.
