This interesting contraption from fifty years ago sorts the bare bulbs into sizes. What intrigues me are the fantastic displays which are often not seasonal and brought here from thousands if miles – was this also the way in the 1960’s or were the seasons recognizable ?

Thank goodness we finally found some maples turning to mellow yellow.

More special arrangements to come later – stay posted! Hopefully they will be seasonal too.
