I promise this is my last Christmas themed post for the season, but I just wanted to share a creation other than the twigs.
This arrangement travelled over 100 miles and crossed stormy seas (well, the Solent) in the boot of the car. And it was joined by the dog, the homemade Christmas pudding (mum’s recipe), the 12″ kransekake, and more bottles of wine than I care to disclose, to my sister’s, where it watched over a fabulous, festive, fun, family Christmas.
The foliage was a mix of bay leaves (we have a veritable bay forest at the back of the veg beds), Garrya ellyptica
as well as some home grown mini peppers (Mini Belle Yellow) and mini orange aubergines (Turkish Orange), impaled on green split canes.
I just wanted to share, because it was when I was blogging in October about the fact I didn’t know what to do with the peppers and aubergines once they were ripe (but the summer was over) that it suddenly occurred to me I could use them in a ‘fruity’ arrangement, and thought I could share on this meme. So thank you as ever to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, for hosting.
