Christmas Trees Arrive today

The Christmas Trees arrive today

Urban Oasis is proud to offer fresh cut local Christmas Trees from Wintergreen Christmas Tree Farm in Mill Bay.
We went out to the farm last year to check out the trees, and they are all gorgeous trees.
The trees are lovingly cared for, using a modern approach tempered with old fashioned know how.
They are all grown from seedlings, which makes a big difference in obtaining a straight trunk.

These seedlings have been very carefully selected from favorite trees growing on the property.

How could a tree not be a "Happy Tree", being grown amongst generations of family, and this view.

We met the family dog, and had a good tromp through the property.

Making Reindeer

Here is our first Reindeer...ta-da...opps the antlers are on backwards.

Look at out front yard in November, this was the coldest November day on record.

We closed the store and stayed home in the cozy garage making Reindeer.

First I traced the template of our Reindeer onto a sheet of plywood,...

then my crafty elf cut out the pieces, with his flash new jigsaw.

Look at that Elf go.

Now he is painting the deer,with what was determined by a group of man shoppers at the paint store to be a deer color.

I trust my Elf to chose deer colored paint, he is very cute in his Santa hat too.

Look how he just loves being documented in my Making Reindeer Post, he's a "Keeper Elf".

Here are the Reindeer set for a test run, we left off some of the antlers just in case.

They all survived last nights 60km winds beautifully!

Oh Elf, two more Reindeer, and 6 sets of antlers please.
