Sorry if you were expecting Chicks and Bunnies pole dancing in a tree, but this isn’t Playboy and I’m no Hugh Hefner 🙂 When we left Hampshire last year the Princess asked me to take a decent cutting from the Twisted Hazel. As a bloke I tend not to ask questions, just follow orders (it’s easier that way 🙂 ) So imagine my surprise (as I had forgotten all about it) when I came home to see aforementioned cutting spayed white. It was then that I also realised why she wanted a pallet foot with a 25mm hole drilled into it.
I had been informed earlier that the Princess needed to get some Chicks and Bunnies for Easter. Okayyy I have to admit the testosterone bit of my mind kinda went down the 1970’s Playboy route, but these were the fluffy type. It was explained to me that we were to have an Easter Tree, so I put the leopard skin thong back into the draw and dutifully retrieved the Blue Tack and the preparation began. The Twisted Hazel gets pushed into the pallet foot, the pallet foot is placed into a flower pot and wedged with newspaper. Finally you take some Reindeer Moss (collecting this can very dangerous if they are ‘rutting’) and place it all around the base of the ‘tree’.
Once your ‘tree’ is perfectly balanced you take the Blue Tack in this case Bostik but other brands are available (that’s what they say on the BBC) 🙂 Now you are ready to decorate, this is the bit where the chicks and bunnies (Morrisons Supermarket) come in. Oh! and you can hang eggs on it too.
The decorating also includes lights (Amazon) Of course everyone will have their own idea of decoration.
And finally the finished Easter Tree, I managed to get my log burner in too. Have fun and Happy Easter. 🙂
