Bon Marche-Macy's - Christmas Wreath

‘And a partridge in a pear tree…’ Well, not exactly a partridge or a pear tree, will a couple of pigeons close by and a Christmas wreath do? Yearly, several of these very large evergreen wreaths are placed above the street level entrances to the Bon Marche (now Macy’s) department store in downtown Seattle. The contrast between cool stone facade, evergreen boughs and warm lights speaks Holidays to shoppers in a hurry to finish up their gift lists before Christmas day.

Christmas is just a few days away. We originally planned to have our family Christmas gathering at our house, but my getting really sick was inopportune, so it’s now been moved to my daughter’s house instead. I am just not up to all that I needed to do to get things ready. I’m not even sure I’m up to making a cake today, we’ll see. I’m sure we’ll all enjoy our time, it’s not the where, it’s the who.

    • Bruce: Nice shot, Madge. It’s amazing to me how large some of these logs can be. When I lived in Alaska you could always find massive logs that washed ashore.
