So, you’ve put up your Christmas tree. You’ve got all the decorations looking gorgeous. Everything is going great. Then, comes the finishing touch. The addition of the tree topper. And what do ya know? The stupid thing won’t stay upright!
A few years ago, I had a row of Little Gem Magnolias planted along the side of my driveway to serve as a screen for the garage area. I have been anxiously awaiting the day when these small trees would mature into a somewhat reasonable size. The first spring they did pretty well for a newly planted tree. Then, lo and behold, this past winter, a buck that loves to visit my yard nearly sheared one of these babies completely in half. (I call him Uncle Buck – because he is like the family member that you dread to have visit). 🤣
