Two days of beautiful weather had us out foraging again. This time it was to collect some greenery to make a few fall wreaths. So much green here in Ireland! Lots of Ivy (Hedera helix),native holly ( Ilex aquifolium), and even the berries of St. John’s Wort ( hypericum perforatum). A plethora to choose from! Of course we started with young shoots of the ‘Sally Tree’ or native willow (Salix) that grows here in Ireland. This gave us our wreath form to add our greenery to. So, we set up shop outdoors and made some lovely wreaths, all with locally foraged plant material. Can you tell that I’m having tons of fun? Hope the fall weather where ever you are has been enjoyable!

SO pretty! A great way to while away a day–relaxing and productive at the same time!
One of our best days …….home and foraging!
Great idea. I’ll gather some goodies while blackberry picking tomorrow. Hugs, M
I can just picture a fall ‘wild harvested’ wreath on the door of your lovely home. Oh, those blackberries…..I can hardly stop picking! Will stay in touch! Hugs to you as well, denise
Lovely and pretty darn impressive when you make your own wreath form too. 🙂
super fun project, I think I’ll teach a fall wreath making class in the studio back home….next Autumn, that is!
What’s the variegated leaf?
