Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope you're enjoying the festive season and can take some time to relax and enjoy the company of family, friends and failing that, a furry or feathered friend.
As is the nature of the season, we've been away from the garden a fair bit but still managed to find some time to make our own holly wreath. It was created using some left over wire from fencing projects, a bag full of holly cuttings from my sister's garden and a ribbon saved from the wrapping of a previous Christmas present. With a bit of primping, preening and wire wrapping with gardening gloves on to protect me from the prickly holly and plenty of caution with regard to losing eyes to nasty pointy flicking wire ends, there emerged my first ever home made Christmas wreath.
It was certainly a better way to spend the evening than at the shops looking for that special Christmas wreath alongside half the population of Brisbane. I hope you've all found some simple stress-free pleasures this Christmas.
