Today I bought our Christmas Tree for this year, a Norfolk Island Pine. Only about three feet tall, with an extra foot of height provided by the pot, this is the third year we have done without a large tree and decorated a small, live tree instead. The last pine was growing strong on the patio until a mischevious cat got into it, decided it made a great litter box, and that was the end of that tree. This year, I will keep the surface covered and also sprinkle with a bit of pepper for extra precaution. Achoo.
While I was picking out the tree, I also noticed this very pretty fittonia called Fittonia Red Anna. The colors looked Christmas-like so I put that in the cart too.
