Christmas Tree shopping

Wrestled a nine foot Frazier Fir from the local garden and nursery center home into a tree stand on Wednesday evening. We included Patti in the plans without too much challenge, and she seemed to enjoy the outing.

Interesting how our senses compensate. Because of Patti’s visual impairment we debated whether she would even enjoy the trip as she cannot appreciate the visuals such as lawn displays, store decorations, etc. What she missed on the ride she gained at the nursery with roll in potpourri.

From a wheelchair perspective a Christmas tree lot may be better than the ‘woods’. Nice paved surface to roll around on, up and down aisles of trees. No obstacles or hazards to worry about. The scent of being surrounded by cut evergreen trees, wreaths, and boughs was an absolute treat for Patti..

  1. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all.  Yes, I can imagine how wonderful it was for Patti to sit among a mass of such fragrant trees.
