Spring 2015

Ah, spring is here! It's a lovely day and took a few pics out in the garden. Hellebores always go nuts at this time of the year, and the first bulbs and corms are out. The fruit and berries are all poised to go to, with buds swelling up.

Easiest Christmas wreath ever!

We have an over growth of ivy at our place, so I though it might work well in a wreath. Took me all of 5 minutes to make!

1. Stretch a wire coat hanger into a circular shape (don't destroy the hook)
2. Cut some lengths of ivy
3. Wrap ivy around the coat hanger, covering up gaps and trying to coax the leaves out front
4. Add a few decorations
5. Hang it up!

Might add a few more decorations to it or tweak the ivy a little, but for five minutes work it's not bad.
