Washington DC Christmas

The National Christmas tree is surrounded by many smaller trees-one for each of the States, and Territories. They have round balls containing decorations inside from various groups from each state. My favorite was TN - with the flowers painted on the ball, it looked like pressed flowers. Interestingly enough the tree is there all year round--it is not a cut tree, but is planted. Somehow I never manage to notice it, except at Christmas ... I wonder why? A tree that large and a pine tree at that? Don't ask me. It gets a lot of attention this time of year though.
