If it wasn’t for the fact that I drive or walk by Lolita Gray’s decorated tree at least once a day, I’d never know what holiday is coming up.
Gray decorates the tree in the front yard of the home at Franklin and Hamlin that she shares with her husband, Glenn, to reflect the next holiday coming on the calendar. There are Christmas decorations, of course, but also Halloween pumpkins and ghosts, flags and patriotic bunting for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, and, right now, hearts and X’s and O’s for Valentine’s Day.
The Valentine’s tree is seen in the short video attached to this post. In addition to the hearts, there is heart-filled garland, plush monkeys and red glass ornaments. At night, lights illuminate the branches.
It’s fun, it’s colorful and it makes you feel good just to walk by and take a look.
Thanks, Lolita, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
