The Beginnings of the Holly Wreath
This is the base for my Holly wreath. It is made out of Birch twigs and Willow which is lovely and pliable. I didn't have to use anything to tie it together so far as I wove in each piece and it worked quite nicely. As I write there is a thrush outside the window picking berries off the Holly I cut for the wreath so I may have to cut some more, but I'm happy to provide food for the birds on frosty mornings like this. There is also a Chaffinch picking seeds off the Stachys Byzantina which is nice to see, and a robin is eating seeds we put out this morning.
