We here in the Desert do not have lots of "Christmas" type trees growing around Tucson but we have cactus.
Century plants are just the best for attaching Christmas Balls to the Tips. Just turn them upside down and "wa laaaa" perfect. We are very different out here.
.On every tree I have decorated (especially after the wildfire) even with just the fairy lights and origami I always put this small drawing of a Christmas tree done by daughter.
Your moment of ZEN !
