Walking in the woods, it is easy to return with things to liven the home. If you saw my last post, Death of a Season, you know not to stop and take from the cottage of the Three Little Bears. The hollowed birch bark, found just shy of the bear’s cottage, was used as a “vase” for the garden flowers picked in early November.
But sometimes, staying at home is the most bear-free choice to make. The garden has plenty of browning flowers to pop in oasis for an arrangement to bring the outdoors in.
Keeping my frogs feeling homey, I filled the container on the coffee table.
In the kitchen where the porridge is cooling, I have flowers gracing the windowsill. But, since seeing them is “just not right,”
Here, each of them are individually shown.
Cheer up your home by a trip outside. Add a few florist flowers if much has gone “bear” outside.
I like my kitchen cheery.
Pick up a few Gerbera daisies, Solidago, fern, Kermit mums and dried Statice to add cheer. I grow these lime green mums, but hit by hard weather, I picked most last week for arrangements. The Golden Rod was used in the post Pick Your Weeds – Don’t Pull Them Just Yet. I cut my flowers for arrangements all growing season, do you?
On Monday we have the theme for Monday – Macro Monday – Welcome to Wonderland. It looks at things as Alice might have… stop back as Monday goes to the world of little.
