At the end of November VeggieGobbler suggested that; instead of using plastic Christmas trees it would be a great idea to decorate a branch in a festive manner. Happily this suggestion co-incided with one of my parents Acacia Cognata plants losing a limb in a storm. Thus a Christmas Acacia was duly decorated in the Suburban Tomato household (there was some resistance from the kids who found it difficult to get the decorations on the branches so I’m not sure how much I’d recommend this particular species for future use though). I love the concept so next year I think we’ll try a Eucalypt.
Here is Santa (beautifully knitted by my partners mother) upon the branch wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy festive season.
