Not far from my home I noticed this on the side of the road.
You can’t tell what it is? It’s a scrawny Christmas “tree,” right there on the side of the road.
I drew it onto this next photo, so you can see it more easily.
What on earth? Why did someone add a tree here, of all places?
Actually, it’s not a tree at all. Just a couple of leafy branches whose leaves have now died.
But, it has battery operated lights and ornaments.
Who on earth would put a tree here? I don’t know but I’m delighted by it! Mostly by the idea of someone anonymously adding this decoration to our community. And also, by how pathetic this little scraggly thing looks. I’m sure Charlie Brown would love it.
This little scrawny stick has really made an impression on me. Someone went out of their way to give a smile to those who drive by. What a wonderful thing to do, especially at Christmas time.
I hope your holiday will also be filled with unexpected surprises and delights.
