Those old Christmas trees

Back in the late 1950s I remember my parents putting a Christmas tree in the garden, intending to dig it up the next year. Did they ever? No, my elderly mother finally had it removed in the early 2000s.  Now it was our turn. In the corner of the garden  (moved here a year ago) was another one!!  Wonder how many more there are in UK?

This weekend with the help of our youngest son it was toppled. Being a shared drive we had to be careful but typically someone turned up next door just at the wrong moment. Some small logs for fire in about 2 years time resulted and the bonfire grew even bigger. Cant have one till the corn next door is harvested but it is now raining heavily today so goodness knows when.
