They are there, littering the sidewalks of our cities as soon as the holidays are over. There are still some well stocked as there are skinny ones without their thorns.
Abandoned, they sadden, those who have been purchased with care to shine. Beyond this sadness, for a few years in reality, they have been contributing to the renewal of the gardens for the following year. They will enter the cycle of nature through the shredded plant material obtained, which will become decomposed humus which protects the soil and the plantations from the evaporation of water and cold.
Their death is only appearance.
