I mentioned the "gala" in my post yesterday, which was a private party thing. The Festival of Trees opened its doors to the public yesterday. What a fun event! I took a lot of pictures, and rather than clog up the BDP site, I put them on an "extras" page here. There is a tree for Hilda at My Manila, Wayne at Vancouver Daily Photo, and Kris at This Will Hurt Me. It may be Thanksgiving today, but Christmas thoughts are swirling in my head after seeing so much creativity in decorating trees.
