Mediterranean Christmas Tree

Skywatch Friday
Mediterranean Christmas Tree

This first photo is a close up from a sculpture at the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens in Purchase, New York. The grounds, all 168 acres of them, feature 45 sculptures from artist like Calder, Moore, Segal, Rodin and Miro. They are set among the gardens, which feature a large amount of different plants. It is really a nice place to spend a few hours. It is free, too.

These next pictures are from Longwood Gardens. This was another of the living Christmas trees and decorations made out of plants. This Mediterranean Christmas Tree had Cyclamen, Bush Daisies, Lobelia and some other plants I am not sure of. It really looked nice and was great idea.

While I like Christmas I am not sorry to see it go. Everything gets so stressful at this time of year. The best present we received was Juno’s health as she is once again a happy and growing puppy. The second best was all the new photography gear. I have been itching to go out and do some shooting. Since the weather is supposed to be good we are going to try and go to Manhattan this weekend.
