Today's dash out to the cold wet garden, foolishly undertaken without a coat or gloves, left me chilled! I had to run my hands under hot water for a bit to warm them up. There wasn't much blooming that wasn't already used last week so greens it would be.
Since we have a 12th night party at our house for my church choir, decorations continue to be dragged out of the basement and attic and the scent of fresh greens is always welcome at this time of year.
Once I started playing with the cuttings, it seemed clear that this vase, chosen first, wasn't ideal

Everything's always better with a bird or two, right? Throw in some sparkly pipe cleaners left over from a gift and a few cones and here you have it. The sparkly things need to go away.
Currently the arrangement is sitting in the music room hovering over the remains of the poinsettia challenge entry.
