Merry Christmas!

Christmas wreath on my door

From my door to your home, I hope this time is as merry and bright as it can be under the current circumstances.

This year's wreath is foraged greenery on a straw base with ornaments saved from previous ones. It's bearing up remarkably well after nearly 3 weeks despite no moss or oasis base to keep the foliage moist. New-to-me greenery used in this way are the Clematis 'Winter Beauty' I pulled from the pergola, plus lots of fragrant rosemary from a friend's garden.

I spent a lovely morning at my neighbours recently where we all managed to create something beautiful for our front doors in aid of Dorothy House, a cause dear to her heart as they looked after her late husband so well.

Enjoy the turning of the year towards the lighter days again and I'll see you in 2022!
