Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

October 14th, 2010 at 08:07 pm

My mom's bday is in December. I recently asked her if she knew of anything she wanted for her bday and/or xmas. She said she wanted a tree that had orange leaves in the fall, but the only way to know that would be to go looking now and see what color the leaves were. I told her if she found what she wanted I would buy it for her now. She had up to $150 to spend on it. $50 for her bday and $100 for xmas.

So today we went to a nearby town that has a big outlet mall and a nursery. We shopped at the mall first, went to lunch and then went to the nursery. She found a tree that had exactly the color leaves she wanted. It's a box elder which is a type of maple I guess. It was $220, but we got it at 40% off. So I spent $142. I hope her and dad were able to get it out of the back of the pickup when they got home. It weighed about a 100 lbs. It will eventually grow to 35' high and about that wide. So dad gets the privilege of planting it, I'm sure that makes him happy, but I know she is happy with her early Christmas tree.

I finished reading the library book No Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Paranormal - excellent.

    Living on the West Coast we have one of the rare trees that turn here... a 40 year old Japanese Maple Tree that is about 20 feet high! It's that time of year to deal with the leaves!
