Wordless Wednesday–Winter Greenery

Basket of Greens

Every year I get a basket of evergreens for my landing outside my door. Most years I purchase a commercial basket. Occasionally I try to get creative and make my own. I am usually not satisfied with the result and the following year I go back to the purchased basket.

Home made basket

Here, for example, is my “home made” basket” from 2012. As I look back on it now, it’s perfectly respectable. But at the time I was very unhappy with it. And the winter of 2012-2013 was a particularly snowless one. We only had one big snow (although it was a whopper! We got all our snow in one big storm that year–over 3 feet fell in one storm in February!)

I wonder if this is a “the garden is always greener somewhere else” thing? Are we really never happy with our own gardens? Should we be? Maybe that should be my New Year’s gardening resolution!

    Both are lovely arrangements. I think I have had the same affliction of never being satisfied with my garden…but I am getting better at appreciating it and what nature has provided. Merry Christmas!

    Thank you Donna. Merry Christmas to you as well. Time does make us appreciate things from a distance. I think I just need to relax more. As I said in the post, perhaps that should be my New Year’s resolution.
