It’s Fin’s first WinterPaganFestival, and to make up for not having an advent calendar for him this year (not that he would understand or appreciate it), we’ll have a virtual countdown to WinterPaganFestival that we can look back on in years to come and go: “Aww…”.
So, one day late, but better late than never, is Fin’s first encounter with a Christmas Fir tree*.
*Strain erased from memory as soon as we walked out of the garden center.
Update: It’s an Aleppo Pine (Pinus halepensis), also known as a Jerusalem pine. And the adult form is nothing like our cute chibi tree, but sprawls out into a giant more suited for parks than home gardens. We thought it was the lesser of two spikey evils compared to the other available potted tree: the Italian Stone Pine (Pinus pinea).
