More Christmas goodies at the nursery

As I do every year, I went to my favorite nursery to ogle their creative holiday decorations.

Here’s some of what I saw.

How about this stunning wreath made from tree branches?

This sphere, also made from branches, was full of lights.

This pine, standing outside one of the greenhouses, was festooned with beautiful silver balls.

Owls are big again this year.

Here’s a close-up view. Note use of dried plants, beach stones and penguins.

My holiday prep – such as it is – is just about done, so I can relax and enjoy the season. I hope you can, too. (And yes, I did by myself a little something…)

    Looks like the holidays. By the way, I love your banner picture of the doves and sparrow on the stone wall. What a great shot.

    The wreath of branches is really pretty. I can find more than one thing to pick from that gardener’s tree. 🙂

    Those look good enough to leave up way beyond the holidays.

      They do, don’t they. That nursery closes for a couple of months after Christmas, so I think the greens are chipped and/or composted.
