DIY Make Your Own Winter Wreath

It’s simple to make a wreath like this one.
Use cuttings from your garden, the forest or a garden center and have fun with it! 🌲⛄️🌿

Here are the cuttings I used. They came from my garden and from the forest. You can use pretty much any type of evergreens. Mix different colors and textures to make your wreath look interesting.

Container Arrangement that will last though the Winter

Here’s a simple arrangement that will last all though the winter. The plants I’ve used are cold tolerant and will do fine in a container. For extra interest I added cuttings from evergreens. They will eventually dry out but I’m counting on them looking nice for at least a few months.

🌲PLANTS
Helleborus ‘Niger’
Skimmia Japonica ‘White Drarf’
🌿 CUTTINGS
Spruce from the forrest
Arborvitae ‘Emerald Green’ from my garden
Tetarian Dogwood from my garden

The pumpkins from Halloween are still hanging in there

Late Fall Porch Decor in Deep Red Colors

My porch all set for late fall!

We had a first frost this weekend. The cold temperatures knocked out most of my fall containers with plants like Coleus and Begonias. The plants went to the compost and I cleaned up the front porch for late fall.

I usually do arrangements with three to four types of plants per container. But this year I thought I would try just one type of plant per container and instead to group the containers. It turned out really nice and clean!

Mums are such wonderful late fall plants!
Heuchera, I don’t remember the variety
Creeping Wire Vine
Helleborus Orientalis ‘Viv. Victoria’
