Friday/ Christmas is coming

The Christmas dragon likes candy canes.

There’s a friendly ‘Christmas dragon’ on a parking lot close by my house, where they sell Christmas trees every year. The trees are said to be up to 10% more expensive this year. The reason: in the 2007-2008 recession fewer trees were planted, and those are the ones now being harvested.

(Picture from KING5 TV station): Trees from Christmas Hills Tree Farm in Mossy Rock, some 2 hrs south of Seattle.  These are probably ‘noble firs’ (the farm’s specialty).  Noble firs are limited to the Cascade Range and Coast Ranges of the Pacific Northwest.
