it's the first of December... new badge time!

30 Nov 2011
Overcast 6°C / 43°F

Okay, technically this does not fit the definition of ‘harvesting’ as the berries of holly are not edible however, I figure that if I owned a holly farm, I would be out there harvesting holly for sale around this time of year.

The spruce wreath was purchased but the holly and pine cones are from my garden. It’s not the best wreath… it wouldn’t win any prizes… but it’s a nice wreath and I’m pleased to have it hanging up in our veranda.

Thought that middle picture looked a little odd… it should be rotated 90 degrees. Sorry about that everyone. I don’t know how to fix it now without going back to the ‘pre-flickr’ stage.

Very nice! Holly is one of my very favorite plants – I think it goes back in my historical subconscious to my ancestors. The bushes I planted in my yard a few years ago might be big enough this year to cut some sprigs and I’m really looking forward to that.

Thanks, SneIrish.

Thanks, Amarylis.

From now on, I’m going to make sure I always decorate a wreath in early December. Such a shame to not take advantage of the holly. And there are still lots & lots of berries left for birds in the winter.

100% better than anything on our local market – I’d be glad to have it hanging on my front door!
