TAKE A LITTLE BOUGH Skip the towering tree that gets tossed to the curb post-holiday and opt for a small, simply decorated potted fir or spruce wrapped in burlap and secured with string. (Set the tree on a draining plate before you swaddle it.) To admire its silhouette from both inside and outdoors, place the tree next to a window. Come spring, plant it in your garden.
