As I write this, snow is blowing across the cold, empty roads. Winter has arrived in Wisconsin, this year colder than the past couple years. I love the quiet of winter and the preparation for and celebration of the holidays. This year's holiday card depicts a tree that grows only in New Zealand. So while many of our trees up in the Northern Hemisphere are bare, trees like the New Zealand Christmas Tree in the Southern Hemisphere bloom in festive red and green colors. I have never seen a tree like this. My husband was in New Zealand last December on a business trip and got the chance to see many of these beautiful trees. They grow more outward than upward because of the sandy soil in which they thrive. Some even grow on beaches! I hope this cheery tree helps keep you warm and inspired in the early darkness and cold days. 

Prints of the New Zealand Christmas tree are available.

Stay warm!
