There are many sights and smells that evoke the holidays to us. One is the abundance of fruits and nuts, especially if they are frosted so that they glitter and glow in the light.

This year the Westlake Garden Club chose fruits and nuts as the theme for decorating the holiday tree at Westlake Porter Public Library. The tree is adorned with white lights and gold beads, and frosted fruits, nuts, pine cones, poinsettias and bows in shades of gold, red, white and burgundy. The gold tree skirt adds to the overall opulence of the tree. 

The committee that decorated the tree included chairman Robert Pearl, Regina McCarthy, Margaret Schulz, Jean Smith and Carolyn Steigman. Robert provided all of the ornaments from his vast collection. Please make time in your busy holiday schedule to stop by the library and enjoy the tree. It is located in the main lobby near the entrance to the coffee shop.

The Westlake Garden Club wishes you all a very happy holiday season and great plans for your spring gardens.
