As many of you know, the HAGS (High Altitude Gardening Society) created and maintain gardens at the Pine Post Office. And each year, we put up a wreath for the holiday season. This year, we split into 3 teams and each team picked out and decorated a wreath. Here's the result:

We hope they bring a bit of joy into your holidays.

So very lovely!

I am normally quite annoyed with Xmas decorations up before Thanksgiving. But when I saw the wreaths yesterday, they made me smile. They are beautiful.

:applause: Thanks to the HAGS and all the effort to beautify the Pine Post Office! :applause:

The Pine post office is such a sad place right now. Teri left this week (I'm gonna miss her). And rumor has it that Calli will be retiring next week. And with a new (yet to be trained) postmaster, I suspect things will be rather chaotic there for quite some time. We must all exercise patience.

We meet the second Wednesday of each Month, so our choice for hanging the wreaths is early in November or late in December. We always go for early.

I didn't know that about Teri and Calli and Carolina is gone also! I will miss them all.

No worries TB, I am grateful for the smile the wreaths put in my heart!

Carolina is no great loss, IMO. Her utter incompetence and sloth like cadence was more than I could bare sometimes. IMO she should not have been given that position in the first place. But the post office often puts new postmasters in rural areas for sink or swim "training".

Calli's retirement is well deserved. She has been working harder than what was probably best for her body. I hope she takes advantage of some down time to allow her body to heal. I wish her well.

Teri, on the other hand, was a complete surprise to me. She was awesome! Rumor is it was a sudden decision and departure. Very curious. I wish her all the best for whatever comes next. I hope it brings her an abundance of joy.

How wonderful and festive, great work. It is so special that the HAGS have been doing this for the PO.
