Chairs!

Chairs stacked together
mixed with stands of yellow lights.
Unique Christmas tree. 


My husband and I went to Skagit Gardens Nursery last week. (Road Trip!) Our original purpose for driving the 25-ish miles to Mount Vernon was to get the fireweed honey we love from their Food Co-op. Our Food Co-op doesn't carry fireweed honey, sad to say.  But that's another story. :) 

I thought it would be fun to visit Skagit Gardens, since we were so close, and since I'd recently bought a Hellebore from their nursery at our favorite local Garden Spot Nursery. (Where I went to a fun class to learn all about them, but that's also another story. *grin*)

Skagit Gardens had their holiday displays up and we had a marvelous time going around admiring all the creative Christmas trees. This one really caught our attention. I mean, who would have thought all those old chairs and stools could create such a unique tree? 


It's a joy sharing impromptu adventures with my husband.

Don't you love the Co-op in Mount Vernon? I was introduced to it through La Conner Art Workshops lunch breaks (now Dakota Art Workshops) -- it's got the best deli in town. And fireweed honey. . . yum (though I get mine at the Pike Place Market). I haven't tried Skagit Valley Nursery. My destination of choice is Christianson's because it's a great venue for photo taking. The final bit of joy from visiting today is my verification word: hotti. I'm going to revel in being a hotti on this gray, damp day.

Love the chair stack!
I, too, grow hellebores.
It took 4 tries until I figured out they won't grow under walnut trees.
Now I have a flourishing stand of them; they are so beautiful.

That "tree" is certainly unique. Some people are so creative and adaptive. (and many of them are here on these blog pages!) I like the haiku and your story, and although my definition of a road trip is at least 100 miles in one direction, I'll accept your trip as it sounds like you had loads of fun and I have been homebound, sort of, for the past 8 weeks!

Peace
