Christmas trees and reindeer

Yesterday we went to Suffolk for a British Christmas Trees Growers Association meeting where we were ferried from one plantation to another by a tractor and trailer driven by Father Christmas.  We saw the Shropshire sheep in the plantation where they help with weed and grass control and picked up tips on growing and pruning trees. Back in the yard we looked at the reindeer with their enormous feet, went into a barn filled with an amazing display of Christmas decorations, met lots of other growers and helped decide which grower will supply the Christmas tree for Number 10.
