Christmas at the Heathbrook Outdoor Mall

This original post had a close-up of the Christmas tree. I decided it was too gaudy or something. So I deleted it. I like the post much better, now!

Christmas and green grass? It just doesn't look natural to me. :)

Love them both, but the first is a bit surreal.

Wonderful photos Jacob. I like the one with the horse. By the way I did see the post on your blog. I really like the poem that you wrote.

The bright blue is beautiful. The horse is magnificent but the tree---well--not for me. MB

Wow, gorgeous tree. I wonder what the horse makes of it.

Looks a little bit surreal under the blue sky. I can't imagine Christmas without snow and iciness.

Steffe said...

A very different Christmas tree! At least compared to the ones we cut down in our woods!

At first, I thought it was a big tree. Then, I noticed it was only a little taller than the horse. Must be very small bows.

Something about that tree and the blue sky just seems wrong. Where's the snow?? ;-)

And I thought at first that was a real horse and he was going to nibble off that tree. Hee!!!

It is a very pretty tree...I liked the second picture better, but you knew that.

Lois said...

Cute tree and I especially like all those bows! It looks pretty Christmasy to me, but then I'm used to Florida and no snow, which is why I live here :)

Daryl said...

Its a bit much, eh?

JM said...

If you have taken the photo a few seconds later, the horse would be eating the red decorations on the tree! :-)

Just found your blog today . You have some very nice pictures posted and they are all familiar to me! We, too, are in Ocala-and yours is my first time in finding someone in our town, blogging! :)

Come visit my blog(s) if you can. I have 7! :)
