Here's the Candelabra, BYO Candles

You've seen this species of tree here before, but never with so many seed pods. Doesn't it just look like a candelabra waiting for tapers to be placed and lit for Christmas?

Yes, it is the lovely tulip tree, Liriodendron tulipifera. Wouldn't it be an amazing sight with a candle glowing in each one of those little holders?

I've fixed one for you. You'll have to use your imagination on the rest!

It would be beautiful! And like an old-fashioned traditional Christmas.

Spectacular...I've got a great imagination but I would so like to see it done by YOU. I used to be a fanatic for candles in the house.

Very nice idea. Too bad you couldn't put candles on all the flowers.
