Our recent drive to Mt. Royal in the western part of the Prince Edward Island took us through Coleman. On the main highway in Coleman, there is a house with a deciduous tree in the front yard which is decorated with various buoys year round. We always stop there to see the tree and its lovely ornaments but we have never seen the tree this time of year. Until this week.
The tree is decked out in its bevy of buoy baubles. Some have several buoys hanging on rope. Single buoys hang there too, some on long, others on short ropes. The colours of the buoys are varied, some two toned, others, solid shades in rainbow colours plus an occasional black.
An old pair of snowshoes, similar to those my husband and I had years ago, hangs on the side of the house.
On the lower part of the tree trunk, a tire, painted green, is encircled with lights and has a bow, making a lovely wreath. That’s how to recycle!
In front of the house, a bird feeder has a string of jingle bells hung down and an angel on its post. I wonder if the bells keep the birds away?
The evergreen shrubs closer to the house are hung with large bulbs which give a whole other meaning to the term bulbous bushes.
These decorations make me smile.
I hope everyone has a peaceful, safe and healthy Christmas. For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, I wish you peaceful, safe and healthy days. I’ll see you in the New Year. Take care everyone!
