You can put all sorts of different things ion a wreath. One of the cutest ones I've made was one with big silk sunflowers, empty sunflower seed packets, and these packets had the look of heirlooms, and small clay pots. I have some miniature garden tools I plan to use. For a kitchen wreath, I'm planning on covering a wreath in either burlap or Buffalo checked ribbon and out small plastic veggies and fruits on it. I have carrots, chili peppers, asparagus, tomatoes and little onions for this project. Another project involves covering a wreath in moire silk and putting my Moms old gloves on it, a tribute to her. I haven't really gotten the design of that in my mind, yet.

Might be awhile before I get it done! I have lots of projects ( in my mind) that I want to work on. Should have been doing some during these dreary winter days. There's a definite hint of Spring here, and it's almost time to start planting! I will be planting lettuce, spinach, and onion sets, if I can find them, in a couple of weeks. From what I've seen on future casts, we are going to end the Winter on a mild note and have an early Spring. I sure hope that's correct. It's been a hard Winter in more ways than one. Thinking

I haven't come here for a long time. And there are so many interesting things here! And flower arrangements, and interesting conversations with coffee or tea!

I realize that I don't understand flower design, but I just love it.
When we were all quarantined at home a year ago, I found painting lessons on the Internet for those who cannot draw, but wants to do it. I bought paints, canvas and painted. I understand that these are not masterpieces, but it helps to maintain peace of mind and harmony.

Bouquets for me are the same harmony.

I agree, she's a natural! Bea, I'm hoping we have some really nice entries at the fair this year, and I will take pics!
It does look like I won't be having many entries other than some potted plants, I planted my annuals very late and it doesn't appear that I will have any decent roses or other perennials. I usually start pre planning about this time.
I've been sick since April 21, with no end in sight, and it's been a real effort to just keep up the basic garden work, not to mention I've had a lot of diseases in my tomatoes that I've had to deal with.
We are going to move from a very small, very hot building to a much larger, better lit cooler one this year, so that's a big plus in my opinion. I'm just not sure how many entries we will have; right now our fair is (will be) fully open, but with the delta variant raging here due to low vaccinations, I don't know where we will be by September. Folks may stay away from the fair for good reasons, specially if they haven't been vaccinated.
