The gorgeous crochet-covered tree is on the grounds of the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook. It joins several other yarn-bombed trees on the campus.
While I encourage supporting the museum, it is visible without entering.
Between the pattern, the coverage, and the vibrancy of the colors, this tree is a real showstopper!
“We’re very excited to announce that artist Carol Hummel, designer of the crocheted trees is returning to the museum this year to freshen up some of the existing trees and create a whole new design for an additional tree!”
The Stony Brook Village Center works very hard at keeping a small town, community feel alive. During the winter season they hold an event called the Promenade of Trees where the walkway is lined with small Christmas trees that are decorated by families, scout troops and organizations. It’s fun to stroll along and admire the hard work that kids put in to coming up with a tree theme and creating the decorations for them.
This year, when my daughter and I walked along looking at each of them I was surprised to see this tree covered in motorcycle themed ornaments!
On the Road Again is a local motorcycle training school. They cater to those that are looking to learn to ride as well as riders who are looking to brush up on their skills a bit.
Though my daughter’s tree was my favorite, the On the Road tree with it’s curvy road sign topper was a close second. I hope someone walking by will see it and be inspired to finally take the leap and learn to ride!
