Feeling that it was time for a change on our front door, we headed for the botanical garden to gather supplies for yet another autumn wreath. Although I am not quite ready for winter, and though we have had amazingly mild weather there is no doubt that winter is on his way. The temperatures are dropping steadily now and friday promises a chance of snow.
It is amazing the difference to be seen outside from just this past weekend, already most leaves are gone, and the crispness in the air, has turned to a certain chill.
( I get cold easily, Kaleena still refuses to wear a jacket)
The children played by the creek while I gathered supplies for the wreath
yes, well as I look at this picture it seems that there are still a few leaves holding on:)
I love gathering dried out flowers and plants, I love all the different textures and interesting seed pods, and while this scenery lasts I like to make bouquets out of theses dried flowers. This time though I used my findings for the wreath
At home we brought in the wreath we made to welcome autumn back in august, and took off all the decorations. (note to self ; go easy on the glue gun if you wish for the wreath base to last for a while)
This time I used no hot glue I simply weaved all the flowers into the base, and just two things I tied on with raffia. I really adore the result.
~may your evening be warm and cozy~
