Gardening: Guerilla Christmas tree decorating

Mavis Kerr sent us this picture and suggestion:

 

"I would like to start a trend of decorating random wild trees in the middle of nowhere. Guerilla activity for sure. This one was decorated with simple red balls by wee Amelie at the end of November. I got the balls on sale after last Christmas. We will take the decorations down in the spring. We are in rural Waterloo. It is right by the roadside where it gives folks who drive or walk by a bit of a giggle. Enjoy." -- Mavis Kerr
