book of seasons: The Chrismas tree I wanted this year

I tried so hard to describe the tree to the Bear, but she didn't have a frame of reference. "It's thin," I told her, "with blank spaces in the middle and branches that come out on levels every few inches. Cue the blank stare.

Well, this is pretty much what I had in mind. I had seen the first picture years ago, but couldn't find it until this morning, when I discovered in on Mental Floss. They also had a more modern version, called a "feather tree." Not quite the same, but close.

This year we used our artificial tree again. Maybe next year.
