A messy Christmas

Santa hats adorn several of the burlap-wrapped evergreens that were planted earlier this year in Hampton Park.

This winter is weird. Weird in the unnatural, eerie sense. Oh sure, it’s great being able to ride my bike and I like being able to walk without fear of breaking bones on hard packed snow or ice.

I do not like being reminded that the earth is changing and probably not for the better. But I probably shouldn’t dwell on that too much at this time of the year.

Instead, I will take the time to thank whoever it was who be-Santa-hatted many of the burlap-wrapped evergreens that were planted in Hampton Park earlier this year. It gives a quirky, festive air to the otherwise grey and foggy skies that have dominated this past week.

If the skies clear and you happen to be driving west along the Queensway between the Island Park and Kirkwood exits look to your right and you may catch a glimpse of the trees in their jolly hats.Santa trees
