for the animals

Last year's Christmas tree has been out back by the wood pile all year. It has been used to make fort walls and ships; branches have been taken as needed for starting fires, sweeping paths, building houses. But now it is revisiting its former glory.

This time, decorated with popcorn strings, apple rings and old cookies,

with berries from the yard and the remains of autumn.

The animals have their own Christmas tree.
