Forest Bouquets

Forest Bouquet Living in Eastern Canada where thereĀ are a lot of bare branches for several months of winter makes me appreciate evergreens, more than I probably did growing up in Vancouver where it was always green.

After a walk in the woods after a windstorm this Christmas we collected some fallen boughs and a couple of lichen covered sticks which became forest bouquets.
