This is the earliest I’ve ever bought a Christmas tree, but with next week being 8th December, I know that a lot of the good trees will have gone and given when it gets dark now, if I hadn’t bought this weekend, I would have had to wait until next week. I have to say that I am totally delighted with the tree this year. Although it can’t be seen from this angle, there is even a part that slightly flatter which will make it idea for going against the wall. There’s a bit of lower branch trimming that I need to do, but other than picking out some wet leaves from the branches as it’s been foul weather, there’s not much that I need to do with it. Once inside it will stay like this for a day to let the branches settle and to get used to the new climate.
