Rabbit Run Cottage will be getting some Winter touches this week.
Wrap thin copper wire around the tops of pine cones to create garland.
Nature makes the best decorations!
A little wreath.
Twisted vines from the garden.
A sprig of Juniper.
A simple bow.
Rural practicality in practice.
The Celosia grown in the garden, dried in the greenhouse, and turned into a stunning wreath to brighten up the Winter backdrop.
This wreath will stay up through most of the Winter. It’s like a cup of coffee for my eyes!
Wonderful words for the season.
Each year I try to time the Amaryllis bulbs to open as close to Christmas as possible.
This bulb just began to show it’s pretty holiday red color…maybe this is the one for this year.
I tucked the pot into a vintage grain sack sleeve.
The little star shaped blossoms sprouting from beautiful tall green stems.
When my kids were small we would measure them in the morning and at the end of the day.
They would grow sometimes as much as 3 inches in a day. They loved that little experiment.
Trying to slow down and enjoy the days leading up to Christmas.
Paper Whites and Amaryllis bulbs bursting color into the cold, white landscape outside my window.
Trying to catch up here with Christmas decorating.
Paper Whites have been dropped into jars, pine cones are piled into bowls, and the tree is trimmed with natural ornaments.
