Citrus Christmas Tree
We had dinner at the Nueva Posada hotel in Ajijic with new friends, David and Karen, this week. We saw this most intriguing Christmas tree in the lobby. It is made of lacquered slices of grapefruit, oranges and lemons. There are also cinnamon sticks tied up with little red ribbons. It is a rounded, one sided tree which allows the light behind to show through the spaces between the citrus slices. Most unusual!! Karen was kind enough to send me a couple of pictures she made with her phone so that I could share this tree with you.
Here's a closeup that shows the citrus slices in more detail.,
It was a wonderful evening of delicious food and lots of fun conversation with a terrific couple. We'll miss them when they leave on the 31st,
