I harvested some leeks this morning. Always makes me happy to have home-grown vegetables this late in the season. There are still about a dozen leeks growing.
I made a second backyard wreath about a week ago for a friend. This time I used thuja, yew and clematis seed heads to decorate the grapevine, plus a tiny brass ornament (the closure of a Christmas cracker). I am having fun with these.
This morning, I foraged in my own backyard for materials for this year’s Advent wreath and came back upstairs with grapevine, thuja, yew and spent spirea seed heads.
I soaked the grapevine for about an hour in the bathtub to make it pliable and then tied it into a wreath.
