A little touch of green goes a long way in winter. That's a bit of information that I have paid little attention to in the past. But this year we got a few table top evergreens early in the season that gave a festive air to the patio long before our recent light snowfall. Turns out that a little patch of snow on an evergreen bough may be all the holiday decoration I need.
Because the temps stayed low for so long, we got a few extra days of nature's glitter than we have had in a very long time. And I love the look of garden structures covered in snow!
This loveliest of table covers finally melted completely away only today. . . .
It all keeps me hopeful that we may have a bit more to look forward to in the months to come.
I also just finished my first seeded eucalyptus wreath. I wish that I could tell you how easy it is. (It probably is!) But it wasn't the snap that I had envisioned it to be. At any rate, I love its fragrance and the loose organic shape it lends to the decor.
Eucalyptus dries beautifully, and is fairly easy to preserve intact if you handle it carefully. We'll see!
I love to have at least a few live sprigs around the house right into the new year.
And yes, the paperwhites are beginning to bloom!
A bit sporadic for now, but I am finding the scent so powerful that I'm glad there aren't too many yet.
So far the leaning corrects itself by rotating the plant. Magic! And hooray for small victories!
So that's how the winter green fares so far around these parts!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a look.
I have much catching up online to do! But thank you for your visits and comments here while there is so much dazzling and beautiful to be found around blog town these days!
