I like to make holiday arrangements for my front porch to welcome guests. A large wooden bucket, filled with Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus), Threadleaf False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Sungold’) and Winterberry (Ilex verticillata) is finished with a big red bow. As the pewter-colored squash still looks good, I left it as an accent.
A small basket hanging beneath the porch light is filled with more fir, white pine and Japanese holly (Ilex x meserveae ‘Blue Princess’), finished with a ‘welcome’ mitten.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
