Bringing the garden in



Faded hydrangea blooms to dry for a Christmas wreath - burgundy dogwood stems for our winter table display and a few leaves to press and use for printing cards and wrapping paper.

  1. Beautiful - we can't grow hydrangeas here, though I think I might try in a large pot, somewhere out of the wind. I hope you will post your wreath when it is done, and your printed paper.

  2. Better be careful - I see a Country Living feature about a lady in the Highlands (sic) who makes wonderful Christmas wreaths from hydrangeas...

  3. Haha Linda - you had me scouring my copy for this feature until I twigged! Well - we'll wait and see how it turns out. My inspirtional ideas often turn out a bit half baked.xx
    Ann - I will post my wreath - however it turns out. I am quite pleased with the paper and will put up a photo in the next day or two.
