I heard from Jetty that they might get flurries West of us, but never did I imagine this.
And so this winter wonderland inspired me not to find drainage stones for my herb garden, but instead to gather evergreens. After a quick Google to check the penalties for clipping from public land, I took a walk outside this afternoon and these are the fruits of that first gather.
I stripped the paper off of some twist-ties and went to town and this is what was born.
Now if you will excuse me, I have more clippings to snip and a husband to meet for a lovely dusk-time stroll in an unexpected winter wonderland. My heart is soaring as my mind is planning wreaths and garlands. I wonder if I could possibly be tipsy from the intoxicating smell of juniper and pine in our home.
Oh how a blanket of white encourages me to begin to embrace the joy of this season.
