Fall Wreathes

wreaths and things 036Two 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.wreaths and things 004wreaths and things 008wreaths and things 015 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!wreaths and things 029wreaths and things 041
