We are just recovering from storms Barney and Desmond and Christmas is around the corner. In the midst of bad weather the tree-hunter decided it was time to find a tree for the festivities. As he searched and looked up the rain was in his eyes. He thought the top-part of this one would make a suitable specimen and quickly cut it and brought it home. Only then did he realize the deception of looking upward in the rain: it had long branches at the bottom and at the top, but only mini-ones in the middle.
