Picking a tree in bad weather

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.

His first impulse was to go out again and find another, but I did not want to waste this one. Sure, didn’t I have plenty branches to fix it! Willow or dogwood would do the trick, and a bit of weaving!

Here is the Before:

A HAPPY CHRISTMAS FROM THE WILLOW WITCH, THE SIDEKICK AND SAILI THE DOG.
