Updates 3:30 p.m.

A second decorated tree has appeared at the north entrance to Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.

It was there last year, too.

Also, all the Maple Leaf ornaments have been taken from the Dog Oasis, but there may be more about town. Jesse Card writes: “There’s three other locations where I left them! Take a Christmas walk and keep your eyes open!”

Happy Solstice Maple Leaf!

Sunday afternoon, as the light was fading from the sky, a Solstice Day tree appeared on the east end of Maple Leaf Park, at the pavilion.

It has lights, a single ornament (a dog, of course) and an invitation to neighbors to bring ornaments to fully decorate the tree.

Celebrate the return of light!
