Over-Accessorized Trees

This tree is perhaps a bit like your eccentric elderly aunt, the one who has donned a few too many accessories (a colorful scarf, a big chunky necklace, clattering bangles, rings on every finger). She smells like Shalimar and kisses you, loudly, on both cheeks, leaving incarnadine lipstick behind... (OK, I made that up--I don't have an aunt like that, but it would be cool if I did!)

This tree has shown a bit more restraint than that . . . but please note the striped accent bark.

Wow, that IS cool bark.

I'm totally enjoying the trees with accessories series. It's so creative. Okay, off to Big Bear for the weekend! If I see any accessorized trees, I'll take a picture!
