Years ago, we began the tradition of a nature tree for Christmas in addition to our usual Christmas tree.  About 3 feet  high, this tree sits on our dining room sideboard and is home to many birds and owls, some bees, a grasshopper and a number of other creatures, either on the tree or under it.

This year, we had a new arrival, one that fit right in, snuggled in the snow beneath the tree.  His portrait is perfect for Sally’s black and white challenge.

    I love the photo and the owl, Janet.

    • Thanks, Allan. The nature tree and its surrounding denizens are one of my favorite parts of the Christmas decorations and as they share the top of the sideboard with our creche, it’s a great spot!


  2. Janet, indeed, it has a whimsy about it, and adore that it is made with natural materials. The owl is a sweet addition to your tradition. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thanks, Sally. As I just mentioned to Allan, the nature tree is one of the parts of Christmas decorating I most enjoy. Since I love nature, it’s a natural (so to speak) outflow of that love.
