Christmas is Coming
It has taken a few days, but my Christmas decorations are now up. As I am allergic to evergreens, we have an artificial tree and artificial decorations. I did clip some holly for a vase, but that's it for the formerly live decor.

About 12 years ago I wrapped our tree with lights so that now it is just a simple matter to assemble the tree and plug in the strands. It has worked well, but in the past couple of years some of the strands have begun to burn out. Hopefully, after I replace all the strands we will be good for another 12 years.

I took my time bringing up parts of the tree.

Finally! The tree is rewired and fully decorated.

This is one long and heavy garland.

Admit it. You've never seen a tomato cage painted gold, turned upside down with the legs wired together, then lit and decorated before now.

Another long garland and a small tree adorn the front porch.

Damn, I gotta go find my tomato cages and rethink everything.

That tomato cage is beautiful.
