I was meant to post this two weeks ago, during my two busiest wreath weeks but Covid called and my plans took me in a different direction…mainly to bed with hours of Netflix!

I realised I never posted the dried wreaths I made last year – here are some of my favourites along with a few I’ve been making this year. I’m so proud I’ve grown nearly* all the materials for these wreaths in my back garden farm. I love how each growing year brings its own abundance and beauty . Last year it was all about strawflowers, this year golden pennies of orach, honesty and hydrangeas in all their muted tones have quietly stolen my heart.

The garden has once again gone back to earth and it’s hard to believe that colour will ever return. Having a record of what has gone before keeps me inspired for the season ahead. Once Christmas has past, I’ll be making notes and buying seeds ready for next summer – each year building on the beauty of the last.
