Local nonprofit organizations decorate Christmas trees for display in the visitor center at Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, each year. The entry from a men’s garden club included items like hand tools, gardening gloves and packets of seeds.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

  • LOL – much the same! Thanks!
