Older New England towns have a wonderful custom of setting up a beautiful Christmas tree on the town green, or using an existing tree in town that can be decorated each year. Below is a picture taken of a local tree, decorated in only white lights. It's quite pretty, in it's simple way, when driving home from work.
But is really what it seems to be?
Or is it something else?
It is a tree sculpture made from recycled items, including flattened oil drums. It certainly has put the "green" in the holiday tree! The main tree trunk seems to be a recycled utility pole. I'm enjoying it, and hope you do, too.
