Its cold this year!! Last year was we had a very balmy December but this year is more seasonal. I grumble about it but in reality I like it because it gets me in the Christmas spirit. I gathered a lot of natural materials while walking in the woods and have had a great time using them in decor inside and out.
Winterberry, holly, grasses, balsam, juniper, milkweed pods in a wooden box on the porch
Wild grasses, Winterberry, Japonica, Juniper and a mushroom covered birch log in a natural pine container make a pretty indoor arrangement
A crabapple branch with lights and glass ornaments becomes a Sparkle Tree
I found these amazing ice crystals on the grasses this morning
And a snowy look at what will be a familiar view if you read this blog often… more white stuff on the way tomorrow
I used to make arrangements from branches and cuttings and put them in my garden containers. Back in my youth.
Thanks for reading Denise. There is an abundance of beautiful natural material in the woods near me and in my garden. I enjoy seeing what I can come up with each year.
