Felicia Navidad Says Let the Trees Live!

Mother Earth Monday: Update on our holiday tree dilemma is that we settled on a live tree for our home that we will plant after the festivities.  Meet Felicia Navidad, our 2013 tree.

Felicia has a home in our home: a bucket of dirt!

Felicia is delicate and required special care.  We used a metal rod to support her upper trunk and we used the tiny, antique decorations because her branches are supple and soft.  So we combine our “plant-a-tree-in-your-name” itchings with the desire to honor and enjoy the holiday tree tradition and not cut down a live tree or go artificial.   It seems like everybody wins, especially Felicia!
