christmas container plantings

outdoor winter plantings that I did on friday. Burrrrrrrrr!!!!! It was cold! They are designed with ceder, pine, spruce, pine cones, red dogwood branches and ilex berries.

Personal story, maybe too personal for this blog but as I was finishing up the designs in the first two photos, I had a distinct impression that my father (who passed away almost 10 years ago) was there admiring my work. What an overwhelming and happy moment that was for me!

Happy monday dear friends!
