Froggie’s Cairns Christmas Tree

Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.   ~William Wordsworth

I love cairns.  Love making them, love designing them, love the symbolism behind them.    I love them so much I have devoted an entire page to both Cairns  and Inukshuks

They are trailmarkers, pointers for helping one to find ones way.  They have been painted or decorated for increased visibility or religious reasons.

I’ve made hundreds of them over the course of several years.  But this is the first Cairns Christmas tree I’ve ever made, or heard of for that matter.   It points upward towards the heavens, draped with crystal icicles and glittered cranberries.  The pantheist in me loves the natural easy flow upwards towards the heavens.  The Green in me appreciates the idea that when Christmas is over I will tear down this Christmas tree and recycle the stone for a pathway in my backyard.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
