Conifers shout “Holidays” to me. Here’s the bargain NOID deodore cedar with one of the towering native cedars as a backdrop.
Despite its humble beginnings, its performance has been stellar.
It has an almost frosted look, so I’m looking forward to the day when I can steal a few branches to bring indoors.
In the meantime, the wind storms were only too happy to oblige by littering the ground with evergreen branches.
A swag for the door gave me an excuse to feature this goofy little folk art angel that usually watches over my work station. I made a loop in a length of rope, then wired bundles of branches onto the ends with the unused wire fasteners from our trash bag liners. A purple satin ribbon matches the angel’s robe.
Our fireplace is free-standing, so no mantle. A pony wall around the stairs serves the same purpose. We had to leave a stretch in the middle for Sami to use as a perch.
It’s such fun to have an abundance of material to tuck in here and there inside and out.
I won’t bore you with every nook and cranny, but instead will suggest that you visit Pam to see what she and others are celebrating in the way of foliage.
