Coat Tree

This coat-wearing tree in a Penticton park has survived the winter very well and has acquired some extra style.

March 7, 2022

It looks different from October when everything was much leafier, but it’s still as colourful and inviting as last autumn.

There have been some creative additions, including some hanging pom poms and a branch that is sporting new fashions. I’m not sure who is “clothing” this tree, but there are some very fine examples of crochet, beadwork, and knitting.

Very bright and whimsical!

  1. They look so good when they are new, but the one (“knitted tree”) in our river valley is now naked as weather was not kind to the knitted covers. A great conversation piece. Thanks for sharing Lynette. Allan

    1. Alberta winds can be fierce; I remember winter flying in your area – pretty bumpy – so I’m not surprised that your tree lost its knitting! The Penticton tree coat is a bit saggy in spots, but it has definitely come through the winter rather well.
