Joy to the World!

If Xmas at WalMart consists of Stuff in Boxes on Shelves, Christmas at the Watters nursery consists of much more traditional (and not-so-traditional) trees. By Thanksgiving, the interior store is cleared of seeds, bulbs, and assorted gardening accoutrement -- and the trees go up.

The family was in town for Thanksgiving, making this the ideal weekend for a Watters Christmas treat for the young 'un.

Almost all of the trees are themed (all teddy bears, for example) and there is an incredible assortment of ornaments (for sale, of course), but most are traditional...

But some of the themes are bit oddball. F'rinstance, the cowboy tree (above and below)...

...topped, of course, by a Stetson and flanked by America's Cowboy Himself.

This tree is ornamented with sports memorabilia -- plus blown glass hamburgers!

More pop items, including a piece of pizza as well as a Harley.

Grand ornamental poinsettias, natch, at a nursery Christmas display!

In closing, a picture that literally shouts "Joy to the World!"

Wonderful! I have to get over there to see it. Thanks for pointing out all the interesting "stuff" for newcomers.

Watters' Christmas trees have been a tradition as long as I/we have lived here. It's well worth stopping in for an hour or so!

These are definitely very different from our Christmas trees down here...
