Boughs and Berries

Last week went went on our annual hunt for foliage to dress our home with for the holidays. I always like to go on a day after a very windy night, so as not to cut much from the plant but rather to collect wind-fall. This year April really enjoyed taking part in the hunt for the perfect bough. Things got a little messy but we came home with a big basket full of greenery.
Beyond the aesthetic of these arrangements, I love the smell. It so vividly reminds me of holidays past. I also appreciate the living arrangements. They eventually dry up and remind us that another season, more floral, will soon be upon us.
Do you bring things from nature into your home this time of year?
