Gardening By Osmosis

Many after-Christmases, I take my undecorated Christmas tree to the porch, deck or patio.
If my location has access to a plug-in I string outdoor twinkle lights then hang balls and squares of suet. Then I wind strings of croutons and garlands of orange and apple slices and cranberries around the tree.
Sometimes, if I can get the kids to help, I add a string or so of popcorn.
To finish off the outdoor banquet for the birds I drape colorful thin ribbons over the branches.
When my “After-Christmas Celebration” is complete, I go in the house and wait for my guests.
It isn’t long before...
