Fantastic Fall Wreath


Year three and I’m still using the original artemisia base for my fall wreath. Freshly cut silver wormwood is wired to the form, adding fullness and brightening the dried artemisia.

Last fall I used hydrangeas as the decorative plant material. This year Heptacodium miconioides calyces, commonly called Seven Sons, is the focal point on the wreath, selected for its contrasting pink coloring.  All floral material is from my garden, naturally!

Happy Holidays from our home to yours!

“The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.”  Vita Sackville-West

Wishing you inspiration throughout the 2015 gardening season.
