Living in Eastern Canada where there 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.
This was also my first attempt at making a boxwood wreath. I used a wire wreath frame, floral wire and boxwood that was so widely available at the grocery stores in December. Maybe if I’m lucky the wreath will stay green all winter.
