Well, we have one that we brought from Ohio (and it lived in a pot for several years) and planted it in our front yard. I am sure everyone drives by thinking “what is that thing”.
Here is a photo of one, not mine as I could not find one since cleaning off the desktop and putting all the photos on our external hard drive.
This is about what mine looks like now. A big pile of leaves. (I borrowed these pics, click on any to be taken to the google search)
And here is Harry Lauder him self? (borrowed pic again)
I wanted to share what Kiki and I did. I trimmed up the “tree” the other day because I didn’t want it to hang on the ground and I thought it needed to be more of a shape other than a blob. But just wait until its leaves are gone. It looks, as “Al Borlan” Greg says, “it’s gnarly dude!”
I took the trimmed pieces, took of the leaves, and made this center piece. Now we don’t decorate for Halloween, we decorate for Harvest, then next month it will be Thanksgiving.
I just stuck the branches in a jar. I would have used a Mason Jar but they are all in use.
But here is how it turned out. I hope it may give you some idea’s to decorate for the season with out having to include “Halloween” in your seasonal decorating. (note I have a yankee candle in candy corn, it was on clearance last year and it is Halloween based, but it smells good, and I normally would not buy it had there been a witch or something scary on it.)
