We had just finished putting up the tree. Braced, it . Watered it. Waited a while longer and watered it again.
Soon the room was filled the lovely smell of fresh pine and we stood back to admire our unadorned symbol of Christmas.
Just as we we inspecting the crown we noticed that the prime position was already spoken for. There at the top tracing the pine needle tips was a silver star of web along with its creator.
It looks like the Christmas trimming has already begun.
