Most of the time, the yard ornaments I see
are the usual plaster rabbits, gnomes, and deer
available at any home supply store between
Speedway and Hanoi.
Every once in a while, though, I see
something that charms me and this little tree
was one of them. Apparently, someone wound
heavy gauge wire around a broom stick and stretched
it out to create the branches for the tree.
They then threaded various sizes and colors of
glass beads on lighter gauge wire to attach it to the tree.
The result is a pretty, simple ornament
that glints in the sunlight.
