Supersize me


Everyone knows that strange phenomena of selecting a Christmas tree. You pick one, get it back to your house, wrestle it inside and realise it is a little bigger than you first thought.

As we have countless hundreds of trees, Richard tends to harvest a branch from a pine tree to be our much loved Christmas tree.. This year we picked what we considered to be a small branch from a 15 metre pine tree. It took us about 5 minutes to select and collect our branch from ‘Winter Gully’. Two seconds with a saw, onto our car roof and a few minutes later, into the house. The thing is, that it looked smaller than last years … until we got it into the house …

the large tree

No, that’s not an optical illusion, it’s approximately 5 metres tall.
I wonder if you get giant presents from Santa with a giant christmas tree ….
