Christmas in March?

No, not really. But this beautiful multi-coloured pile of brush is actually a dump pile of abandoned Christmas trees. How they get here and who puts them there remains a mystery to me, but every January you can hike between Rooks Park and Bennington Lake and find this unnatural bird and small animal habitat in an unused waterway. I wish I could post the aroma this pile gives off...it's lovely! Closing the eyes and taking a deep breath will almost convince you it's still Christmastime.

Okay, I smelling. I can smell the pine smell. Where in the world do these things come from? Maybe it's a secret group of Christmas tree lovers.

Wow! A tree graveyard! I'm not too sure I want to smell Christmassy smells right now!
