It seems all over blogland people are decorating their doors for spring. Well, it is spring in Alberta too but, hmmmm, I don’t see any tulips peeking through the ground (could be because I can’t see the ground) and there certainly are no pansies sitting prettily on my step.
But the Pussy Willows are out in full force and I ventured out on Sunday to gather the usual armloads to create my new wreath.
I love gathering these branches. It was quite a nice day and it always feels so good to be outside. I could hear geese honking, ravens croaking, and water running. I could also smell wood smoke in the air – so sweet. Someone must have been cleaning up their yard already.
My wreath looks so at home on my new green door (painted last autumn). It’s a very authentic representation of what our world looks like right now. Twiggy and branchy with a promise of spring.
This year I added a little birdhouse and bird to create a little interest and make it different from other years.
Check out my How to Make a Pussy Willow Wreath tutorial. It’s really very easy!
