Fresh Greens on the Porch

As the years have gone on, I've become pickier and pickier about the greenery I keep around. I'm not big on fake flowers or greens...I just love the real, outdoorsy thing.

Usually stuff like this is given the boot or demoted to classroom decor...

but I used some hand-me-downs from my mama on the porch...


I started clipping fresh greens to tuck in to the garland...


It was so easy to just tuck the branches right in under the fake garland I had wrapped around the post.
Truly that simple...no extra wiring required.


Adding different types of greens really gave it some pop -- especially these junipers.



It even looks real against nature's best!





It's certainly cold and snowy enough to use the skates and sled now!



Winter Blessings!

What a great idea to bulk up the faux stuff! I love your snow pics. All we have had in Georgia is days and days of rain. :-( Oh well...at least there are kind folks like yourself who are willing to share their pics!
