October through December, 2011

The next day was spent decorating. This is perhaps the smallest tree we have cut, but it is well filled out for a 'wild' tree. The 10' ladder was useful — it can straddle the lower branches and let us get close to the top to place the uppermost ornaments. The ladder looks much taller because it is in the foreground; when it is next to the tree, they are nearly the same height.
