winter garden


This beauty is from my indoor collection of plants, a zygocactus I think.

Taking advantage of a spot of sunshine this afternoon, I wandered about outside in my garden, clipping red berried branches, fragrant cedar and shiny green ivy tendrils into a large wicker basket. These I then tucked into the winter wreath on the front door and into several large pots nearby as protection for the winter pansies that I’d planted earlier this fall. The last of the cedar branches went into the wooden reindeer’s basket back, topped with pine cones. He now stands and greets everyone just inside the front door with his red nose and shiny red ribbon.

Simple and satisfying.
