The store windows on Main Street are all decorated with lights and trees.
There are a few unusual ones too.
Here are my favorites:
Santa and his "test drive" with one reindeer.
Mickey and; Tigger
Minnie and Mickey
As it gets colder, it becomes time to drag out 20 trees to the front of the stores and plant them in the barrels that we plant flowers in. A good crew joined us to complete the project. It was -7 degrees.
It is a real skill to get the trees to fit in the buckets and stand straight.
The trees had to be untied, "fluffed up," trunks cut to fit, branches trimmed and wires tied.
Festive lights were placed on them the next day.
After planting trees and warming up a little, I headed to my local greenhouse to look at holiday baskets and festive wreaths.
I like living trees, but already have a few.
The owner made a special one for me to hang on my coop.
Complete with chicks, straw hat, eggs in a basket, Simmental cattle and tiny cow bells hanging in the middle.
Looks good on the coop.
The Main Street trees that we put up looked really good after the 12 inches of snow we got on Sunday.
Up the road, the neighbors have a vintage creche in their yard. Its older than I am.
Of course, I love the cow.
I think this scene needs a few chickens and some real hay.....
The local wildlife are also being subjected to holiday decorations.
Have you got your barn, coop, doghouse or garden decorated this year ?
Anyone using solar lights ?
