It’s a Grand!

by Dave Weller

We went to pick out our Christmas tree tonight. We’ve been getting Fraser Firs for many years. This year we decided to try something different. The first tree we came to was called a Grand Fir. We had never heard of it before. They told us it’s common in the Pacific Northwest. It’s much softer looking than the Fraser, and is very fragrant – citrusy. We decided to give it a try (we live on the edge!).

The branches aren’t as strong as we’re use to, so some of our real heavy ornaments may have to stay in their boxes this year.
