If you are like most of us married folk, you celebrate Thanksgiving twice, once with each family. Today we enjoyed lunch with my family, and after 4 days of steady rain, we were due for a day of nice weather. Nice it was, with temperatures reaching the mid-70's. My mother, in her usual festive fashion, made an arrangement that I wanted to share with everyone. She simply hollowed out a pumpkin, filled it with oasis, then placed a few flowers inside. Branches from the garden filled in the rest.
My mother is such an inspiration.
Plant materials used:
- acuba japonica
Molly and Rose (my dog sisters)
As always, Mom and I couldn't resist the opportunity to make something together. Look for the Magnolia wreath tutorial on Tuesday's post.
