Rainjustlearning I think you are v. clever to load the pic, I don't know where to begin. Your tree is a good shape.

Your Christmas tree is really lovely, the perfect shape and bushiness.

Lovely tree.Rain, perfect shape. I have bought one to pot this year, not sure if roots are good enough. At moment it is soaking in a bucket. Will pot it up tomorrow

The tree is a good hiding spot for the little birds that come into the garden as unfortunately the local Kestrel pays a visit now and again so they can duck into it out of the way,  I will decorate it in the next few days and post another photo.

I love outdoor trees with lights on - I bet yours will look great Rain.

About 10 years ago, I collected some cones from the base of a Scot's pine, planted the seeds and left them outside in a large pot over winter.  I was surprised that about 8 germinated and steadily potted them on as they grew.  Now there are several 4-5 foot high trees in large pots which I move around the garden.  They're not everyones idea of a perfect Christmas tree, but I really enjoy bringing one or two inside for a couple of weeks each Christmas, knowing I have grown them.

Santas l. h. What a brilliant idea; Scots Pine are my favourite trees. There is a road somewhere between Thetford and Ixworth where there are many Scots Pines. The sun dapples their trunks a deep ginger/gold; stunning! Can you show us a photo of your little trees?

I am looking for an average sized real christmas tree to plant out in the garden, I'm looking to see if any local people are buying potted ones that they will throw out after the festivities. I with some of you and dont like the idea of cutting down trees for a few weeks then throwing them out. I keep an artificial tre in the house. but do love the look of real ones. Oh, Rainjustlearning your tree looks great.

I tried to send these Christmas trees (in the background) earlier but it didn't work, so now they are sent via photobucket. Just to show you what will happen eventually if you plant one in the garden. Mine are between 15 and 20 years old and they are huge. Luckily I have a big garden. The biggest two, not in the photo, have had their bottom branches cut off as they were spreading too far.

Finally got into the garden to decorate the tree,  got most of the baubles on and the lights but it's started to rain,  here you are. you must admit that trees look better in the garden than in the house.

It's a lovely tree, but I like a tree indoors as well as I have 4 grown-up married children and 6 grandchildren and usually some of them come to stay for Christmas and we put all the presents under the tree. This year they are all coming. You may have seen from my previous posts that I have outdoor trees as well, but they are too big now to decorate.

Your garden is beautiful Busy Lizzie the tree's in the backdrop are fab but I see what you mean.  Hopefully mine will grow as lovely as yours and Rains and I have an area at the bottom of the garden where we need some privacy from a new housing estate and I couldn't think of a nicer evergreen tree to use.

Busy Lizzie; what a stunning garden...I can just see myself in a hammock there!

Busy-Lizzie

Thank you Artjak, it makes it all worthwhile when people say nice things about it. I'm very lucky to live in the country and have space. Here's another one. I love seeing other people's photos too. Happy Christmas!
