Nature Friday Pine

where is da Big Boy?

On Thanksgiving Day, I searched our yard for a fallen pine limb. I wanted to create my own original Charlie Brown Christmas tree. None had fallen, and the lowest limb to cut was to high to reach and the MAN refused to drag out his pole saw and cut me one because he said I did not need it. The tree is about 4 stories tall.

Last week, I found the perfect limb. Laying on the ground. Pining for me to pick it up.

 I stuck it in one of my crystal vases Avocado Oil Bottles that I can't make myself recycle, and sat it on the table.


Bob said WHAT are you DOING? just like that is how he said it. Trust me...

My reply was "taking photos of a pine limb that fell off the tree that would have been perfect for a Charlie Brown tree and its to late because I already bought one because you would not cut one off the tree with your pole saw on Thanksgiving day when I asked you to."

When I checked to see why there was no answer, he was asleep... 😁

I think you can tell I was Pining for all of You, or maybe Just Pining for your attention!!!

. IF I TAKE THE PHOTO.... YOU ALL will SEE it whether it is worth seeing or not. MAY THE FOREST BE WITH YOU.....heh heh heh

After 10 minutes of playing with it, it went out the curb for trash pick up. It smelled really good but was a tad sticky.
(I love my bought Charlie Brown tree so all is well) I took it down on New Years Day, the REAL Charlie Brown Tree and it took 10 seconds...
If I hunted for downed pine limbs on Thanksgiving Day and Took down Christmas decorations on New Years Day, what do you think I will do on the Next Holiday?? What is the next holiday? hum
I do hope this will pass for a nature post, because it is in my human nature to TALK TO MUCH

The next holiday is Easter (after Valentine's Day). I expect you will be looking for rabbits. The branch looks quite exotic on the table with the flowered chairs and pretty red placemats. Looks like it is on the kitchen table at The Golden Girls.

Next up is Valentines Day. Do you have any bleeding hearts you can take pictures of?
Fun idea to take that branch inside to play with.

I laughed out loud at Bob sleeping while you gave your little speech!

I love your pine branch. You should live here - surrounded by towering pine trees. We have so many that we have cut some down to make our place fire safe.

HaHa..Sandra you are a pure delight.
Thank you for my morning giggle.
You are just too Puny too.
Bob and you make quite a comedy team..Bob playing the straight guy....
Pretty photo of the pine bough...I actually like your Charlie Brown tree better. That was a perfect tree for you.

I do love the smell of pine and yes they are sticky. I forgot to put my Charlie Brown tree out this year. I meant to ask Mark to get it off the shelf in our closet and continued to forget to ask when he was around. Next year!

LOL..Oh Sandra, you always make me smile! This is perfect for Nature Friday!

I LOVE this Charlie Brown tree! What a pity you couldn't shellac it and preserve it forever and ever!
They may not always be the prettiest, but I've a real soft-spot for pine trees. In grade school I used to sit on the ground and stick the long-needle end into it's own sticky bottom … then see how long a chain of loops I could make.

I do like your Charlie Brown tree. It looked cute! Nothing like the smell of pine.

Paula said...

Time to start looking for Valentine's decorations. I have no doubt but that you will come up with something.

Ida said...

I miss having a real tree (mainly for the smell). Your Pine is lovely in the vase.

Rose said...

I cannot believe I missed this...I am about to the point of having a Snoopy Christmas tree myself...
