This wonderful magical tree is on display at our Central Library. Created by librarian Blythe and made of recycled paper packaging. It's name is Braeburn Greenleaf Goodwood III (an apple tree), and it changes with the season. Faeries live behind the little door.
Arrangements like this are easy and fun to make. Mix it up for Thanksgiving and add artichokes, grapes and gourds. You can make your own trough by using a plastic rain gutter from a big box store, cut to your desired length and silicone end caps on. To hide the trough cove with fabric with glue gun or wrap in colored foil. You can drape greenery to hide it as well.
