The Cross House
The first such tree was a straight line along its base. Then I realized that you could only see it head on. Coming from the south or east? The tree disappeared!
The second incarnation had a V-shaped base and this hugely helped although the V was a bit pinched.
The third incarnation I widened the base by 24-inches and this seems about right. At last! This only took three years!
Today, it proved that we did not have enough strings of lights, sigh, so Justin and I ventured into the basement to untangle a mountain of previous light strings. It took an hour to extract eight strings. Luckily, amiable conversation helped pass the time.
When all was done, and while still daylight, I went to see the movie ARRIVAL for a second time, because I loved the movie so much the first time. After, with darkness descended, I drove back to the Cross House to see the colorful wonder.
So, thank you, Justin! And happy holiday to everybody!
