Christmas in the Forest/ My World

Every year in November, someone decorates this tree at the intersection of two paths in the York Regional Forest, which as you can see is very pretty once it snows. Sometime in January the ornaments will be removed. So far, I've never caught whoever is doing this but I hope I do sometime so I can thank them.

I first thought that you had been clever with Photoshop - than I read the text. It was even better.

Amazing and very festive idea for the feast of Christmas!
It reminds ancient Greek religious rituals of twelve gods!

Texas Travelers said...

Great idea. There is a roadside tree decorated likewise here in Texas, but I have never seen it decorated.

Thanks for sharing,

How much fun it would be to come across this tree unexpectedly. I found a tree with decorations in August. Someone didn't come by in January to remove them.

That's a lovely idea to decorated trees on the way! Hopefully it snows when the tree is decorated!

This is great! I see that someone did what I always think about doing to a couple of trees I've seen.

A Beautiful place to be.

Oh wow, now that is a good mystery. Will you share with us your discovery once you find out who is the good soul who does this? Very pretty.

Dirk said...

Oh wow...now I want to do the same thing! LOL

What a wonderful thing for someone to do---it reminds me of the person in Baltimore who leaves a bottle of cognac on Edgar Allen Poe's grave each year, on his birthday. Sweet, and a lovely mystery.

Surely they come and take down the ornaments at some time--so you could perhaps hang a thank-you card from a branch? Though, this blog post is a mighty-nice thank you as well!

Thanks for sharing it; it gave me a smile.

That is so beautiful

Small City Scenes said...

I am glad some one takes the time to decorate the tree. I just took a pic of a small volunteer among my trees and maybe I will decorate it. It is up by the road. Good idea---thanks. MB

mannanan said...

How brilliant is that and such a mystery. It looks stunning as well. Thanks for sharing.

Wren said...

Beautiful. I love it when someone unknown does something so nice, and now you've shared it with all of us as well.

SandyCarlson said...

How very, very beautiful.

Stacey Huston said...

kayleen said...

Lovely photo. I wonder if the person who does it realizes how much joy he/she brings to others? Hope so.

Arija said...

What a wondrful thing to do!
When the wole family came together on Christmas eve, we all trouped down the hillside garden and each member hung a real glass bauble on each of the small coniters we had planted, so that no little tree was left out.

Rose said...

that is so pretty it doesn't look real! What a wonderful thing to see every year!

Marites said...

i'd probably be staking out the place to check out who's been decorating the tree hahahaah! that's really nice:) but probably, Gmj is right in suggesting that you should just leave a note to say thanks:) My world is here

Mary said...

How wonderful!

Inkivääri said...

So nice to have lamps in forest too:)

The Good Life in Virginia said...

Babs (Beetle) said...

That is beautiful! You cant get it any better than that for Christmas!

ChrissyM said...

I love this photo! Awesome capture!

Judy said...

What a wonderful thing to do for the world! The closest we have around here, someone at the dog park hangs a container of dog biscuits from a tree every December, and takes it away after Christmas.
Of course, this is far prettier!
Thanks for sharing!

Gaelyn said...

That's the best Christmas tree ever. Why not leave an ornament of your own with a thank you on it.

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

This is one beautiful photo, certainly suitable for Ruby Tuesday as well. I also love the sunset below. Hope you get the snow you've been wanting. You can have some of ours!

Lilli & Nevada said...

We too have trees around here that someone decorates, but it is decorated all year long, I think that is pretty cool . Kind of like the shoe trees you see once in awhile.
