Having said that, guess what greets me every day at my back door?
I KNOW!!!! Shame on me! Here it is, February 24, and I still have this poor-excuse-for-a-wreath as a howdy-do! Along with the skates, sled, and skis...oh,my! And I'm not even letting you see the "greens" in our window boxes!
This past week we have had severe winds blowing in from Sioux Falls, SD or some godforsaken place, and if you have any birch trees on your property, you know what's left in its wake. An abundance of dead branches littering the yard.
Now, I know my good friend Martha would do something creative with those lovely branches, so I sent my hunter and gatherer out into the cold to collect a few that weren't broken, dug out my floral wire, and went to work.
OK, maybe not up to Martha's standards, but better than a freeze dried Christmas wreath! So, you've all been warned. Ranger 911 may be patrolling YOUR neighborhood next!
