Tree tradition continues
An unofficial Scripps Ranch holiday tradition is underway as residents have begun decorating some of the trees in a small nature park on the west side of Spring Canyon Road just south of South Brookville Drive.
Simple ornaments and garlands are beginning to appear on the trees of all sizes in the area. Most noticeable is the fact that a few of the small, barren trees that appear to be struggling have been the first to be adorned this season. These “Charlie Brown” trees bear a few shiny tinsel garlands and some ornaments. Two of the large pine trees – standing on each end of the park – are wearing what appear to be strings of hand-made hoop decorations.
There are plenty more trees waiting for decorations.
