To brighten the darkest days I created this sunburst of a wreath making use of Winterberry (Ilex verticillata) and Curly Willow (Salix matsudana) from the garden. Branches are clipped and tucked in a sphagnum moss covered frame. This is a wreath for outdoor display as heat and dryness will hasten the berry drop…. I’d also recommend wall placement as opposed to hanging on a door. The repeated opening and closing jostles and loosens the fruit, and could be a little messy.
I’ll report back how long it lasts outdoors….at least through the New Year I hope, unless the birds think its their holiday present.
