Yarn and BUTTONS!

I saw this tree downtown yesterday:
You will notice it has been "bombed", i.e., given a hand knitted or crochet little jacket, just for fun, by some ambitious needleworkers.
But, these illustrious people stole my heart when they added -- you guessed it -- BUTTONS!

Oh!My!Gosh! A hand-knit tree-cozy with BUTTONS. You say it was "bombed". Is this a Colorado Springs thing??

Thanks for showing us this Laurie, isn't it fantastic.
I once saw some trees wrapped in fabric and that was fascinating. Recently I went to an exhibition in the English Lake District where they had completely covered several park benches in knitting.

Sooo fun. Hmmm, I have a few trees that might need a sweater. Mimi

This is in Colorado Springs, downtown. If you Google "yarn bombing" you can see all kinds of these works on trees, benches -- just about anything!

I haven't seen anything like this either, Laurie! Very clever! Trees are ' naturally' pretty, but the sweater makes it look dashing!! :)

I noticed in the first photo a sign stating: "ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL BEYOND THIS GATE." Going all out to protect that tree, I guess! Ha ha!
