The Christmas Xate

While we have lots of pines in the Mountain Pine Ridge, none of them are Christmas tree calibre. So, we decided to decorate one of our local palms, the Xate, along with a black orchid (the Belize national flower) and a dead stick. This is the result...which we like! Our friends Erik and Rhea understand the icicles on a palm picture, but for the rest of us, it's just pretty! And we've kept the horse theme going from our life it the US.

Hi guys!

Not quite a cartridge in a bare tree but close.... LOL

But -- I like it. I can see that the decorating time had to be a whole lot less than mine. We're home to guests for the holidays so "Everything" had to come out.. but it is pretty.

I have spent one Christmas in Belize and in a swimming pool... I think I could really get used to it on a more regular basis!

Anyhow, Merry Christmas to you both!
