Then, with the cut off branches, a couple of bunches of roses and a bit of hedgerow plundering I tried my hand at making my own wreath. The roses are loooking a bit frost bitten as this was taken two weeks after making - apologies but I have had the lergy that is going around :)
And finally, I tried my hand at an arrangement for the mantle peice - not bad for a first try? The roses were red when I put them in, but the fire took effect after 10days.
I am really quite pleased with my efforts on the arranging front and may well try again next year. I hope you like them as well.
I've got a few hyacinths coming on nicely in the bay window - will show you them soon, they smell gorgeous.
