Lovely trees everyone. Just How tall is your tree then Ice queen, Sorry can't remember your real name - is it Jean? 

Beautiful tree PamLL and I love your outside decorations.

As for your packaging Gary - inspirational 

I hope my tree will survive in its pot to be brought in each year, never tried it before.
