Carol at May Dreams Gardens, and some of the other blogger's that I visit have added photo's to their blog's, of garden themed ornaments that hang on their Christmas trees. I am amazed at how many different gardening ornaments are out there. I have seen very few that are the same. I am not sure that I have seen any of the ones that I have, on anybody else's tree.
I actually put up two trees every year. This started when my Son was small. He wanted a tree with multi-colored lights, but I had always used white lights. So, the large traditional tree holds all of the family oriented ornaments, and the smaller tree is covered with any religious, or more delicate ornaments. I enjoy both tree's, and have collected enough ornaments over the years, to cover each.
I actually have garden related ornaments on both trees. I will add my favorites here.

This ornament is one my teenage niece made when she was a little girl. It is a worm. I love it!

An asparagus, believe it or not!

St. Fiacre wisdom.

I bought this one for my husband years ago from a specialty catalog.

Watermelon, Yum!!

A glass carrot.

The garden of weeden, I'm sure we have all been there!

A delicate ear of corn.

A beautiful glass rose.

A brass oak leaf.

The so'mores marshmallow watering can man.

An herbal ornament.

A glass santa with a watering can.

The red hot pepper.

More St. Fiacre wisdom.

Gardening Angel, we all need one of those.

Another herbal ornament.

The apple core, not even turning brown yet.

Very pretty trees. I have the watermelon and carrot and an ear of corn. Mine is part of a set I bought years ago. Are yours part of a set?

I also have the St. Fiacre ornament, but I have it hanging year around from a cabinet knob in my sunroom.

That worm is too cute!

Merry Christmas,
Carol, May Dreams Gardens
