oh sisal tree, oh sisal tree…

in true south african style i set my heart on a sisal christmas tree this year and after a 400km drive and 5 hours of ‘sisal-hunting’, we tracked a couple of specimens down on a scrubby, thorn-invested slope.  an athletic burst of a bow-saw & nastily spiked knees earned us a gorgeous tim-burton-esque tree!  i then looped some silver bells & ribbons….and voila!  le bon sapin de noël! (the last phrase said in ‘festive french’!)
