It's beginning to look
a lot like Christmas

Ev'rywhere you go

Christmas Tree
Restaurant Pfarrwirt
19th District


  1. What a lovely tree. It reminds me of a German Feather tree.

  2. Is that YOUR tree?

    Are you going to put up a 'winter' poem by Emily Dickinson in the comments?

    Here's one I like:

    by Emily Dickins

    I thought I saw a snowflake fall
    Down yonder by the mall

    My scarf doth look a tad worn
    I think I'll go buy some yarn.

  3. Sam,
    I agree! And feather trees were probably made with trees like the one in the picture in mind. They have fewer branches and farther apart, unlike any I ever saw on the American East Coast. Only once did we have a similar tree, a Douglas fir, in DC (balsam firs were my family's favorite).

    thank you so much, i shall take up your kind offer and put the poem in the comments box! Merci beaucoup (have been so busy lately, no time to think of beautiful details like this).

  4. Friday nite...7:30...getting ready to make some more cookies. My first batch were Ischler Tortchen and I thought of you. I did take pics. So tired. Happy weekend to you.

  5. The tree is so spare it is riveting. Your photo is wonderful. I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
