Christmas Tree Farm Visit

This morning Mr. Comforts of Home and I went to our favorite Christmas tree farm.  It is way out in the mountains and a beautiful drive.  The weather was perfect!  Sunny and about 42 degrees.

Eennie meenie minee mo....hard to pick just one!  They are all so beautiful. 

Speaking of beautiful, the picture below is just one of the views from the tree farm.  I love the cows grazing in the field.  Did you see how blue the sky was?


We found the perfect tree and Mr. Comforts is making sure it stays on the car for the 45 minute ride home.

I am spending the weekend decorating the tree, house and front door.  I will post pictures on Monday!

Like frosty is saying...see you in two days! (double click on the pictures to enlarge)

Welcome Home,

How nice to get a fresh tree and have that wonderful smell inside. Can't wait to see everything.

How fun, my kids would love to do this. I remember doing it when I was a child and I was a blast, especially seeing real life reindeer at a farm nearby. Can't wait to see it all decorated. =)

It's been years since we had a tree from a tree farm - I love to go to places that have a horse and sleigh or horse and hay wagon.

Cutting the tree is one of our favorite traditions. Our special farm has hayrides and a little cabin out in the field where you can buy hot chocolate to warm up by the wood stove with. Of course, I don't think it has ever been as warm as it is down there right now!

Looks like you both had a lovely day. That is one thing I miss about an artificial tree.

Now that looks like fun! What beautiful scenery...

We need to do that when we get back home! Pretty tree farm. We always get a real tree, I just don't think I could stand a fake one.
Hugs,
Cindy

see you there! said...

That tree farm is in such a wonderful setting. I would enjoy visiting ever if I weren't getting a tree. Looking forward to your decorating posts.

That photo of the valley with the cows.... that could be around these parts... looks like many a scene here. Gorgeous post, Penny!

Donna said...

How fun, Penny! What a beautiful area. We are getting our tree today and decorating too!

Have a good weekend!
Hugs,
Donna

Can't wait to see your decorating photos.

Wow Penny, you live in such a beautiful place! I'm jealous! Can't wait to see your decorations.

We wait till after my grandson's birthday to buy our tree so I have another week to go. I love taking out the ornaments and enjoying all the memories that go along with them. Enjoy your tree trimming!

Kerrie said...

Oh what fun! I loved the days when we went out to cut our own tree!

Visiting the tree farm has always been a family event - until this year. My husband left before Thanksgiving to visit his family in Beirut and my son followed today. I'm going to be at home alone until December 21 so I decided that a smaller artificial would do for me. We will donate this tree next year. It's so odd though Penny, I keep imagining I smell the fragrance of the tree!!!

Penny, you brought some many memories back of the Christmas tree farms that surrounded our farm in NJ!! I can't wait to see all your decorations!!

Garden Girl said...

What a beautiful day! Looks like you made wonderful memories.

...........and today it started snowing like crazy here but I saw people driving home through the blizzard with trees on their roofs!! This afternoon we attended the annual Christmas Tea at the Moravian Church to hear local high school choruses sing, always beautiful, and nibble Moravian Sugar Cake and sip coffee. When we left at 4 PM the snow was falling fast and the trees were coated - very pretty and made it really feel Christmassy!!

Can't wait to see your tree decorated Penny. We have no room for one inside but eventually I'll put up the faux tree in the gazebo as in other years - white and silver decorations this year I think - taking the inside out!

Happy pre-Christmas days.
Hugs - Mary

What a fun outing!

Now...that is what I call "Christmas tree" shopping! Only only thing better would be to take a hike in the hills..with hot chocolate and breakfast rolls...find the tree and have someone come and cut it down and ...never mind. You get the idea. :)
Hugs,
Mona

Wow so many to choose and the perfect setting to boot. Sounds like a lovely venture.
