Not a Christmas Tree

I took this photograph in late fall, and since then I have marvelled (yes, marvelled :) how much the tip of the plant, Amaranthus Autumn Palette, looks like a wee Christmas tree - a golden tree at that. It even seems that lights are affixed on the tips of the "branches". The plant itself grew to an amazing height of almost 7 feet and produced many such blooms, but this one was the most impressive, and most like a real contender for the festive season. Pretty isn't it?
