Snow followed by frost, it was all quite magical.  Gardens are now soggy and squelching towards the end of the year  – thank goodness I am on my Christmas break.

Willow, dogwood and birch have been my plants of choice for presents.   Wendy  (my upholsterer friend ) has a chair spring included within hers.

Tiny flower candles became my inspiration for this table arrangement.


I love  these curved willow arrangements, and with being inserted into florist foam, they are highly likely to take root –  what a  bonus !


Why not step into your garden and return with a handful of stems and make your own ?
