For the last few years from Twelfth Night onwards I can be found lurking in some unlikely places - around dustbins, recycling areas and back alleyways. These aren't my usual hangouts, but it's where the abandoned Christmas trees are.
I find something very poignant about these abandoned trees
especially when you consider that a few days earlier they were the glamorous focal point of the festive home, festooned with extravagant decorations, lights, edible goodies and home to mountains of presents.
This book is dedicated to the Abandoned Christmas Trees of 2009.
