Wreath I Made

I thought I'd post a photo of the wreath I made from plants in our side yard. I used queen anne's lace for the base, then filled in with goldenrod, knapweed (small purple blossoms), wild lemon thyme, St. John's Wort (the reddish seed pods) and yarrow. Later on I added some dried dock which is dark brown. It's a bright addition to a room and smells great.


  1. Very bright and cheery're lucky to have such an array of plants on hand.

  2. This is Beautiful Robin!!! I love gathering from the wild!!! And the colors are so FALL!!! Love it sweet friend!!!
    Blessings, Deb.

  3. Your wreath is wonderful.
    don't you just love using what you already have at your fingertips?
    God provides such beautiful treasures for us.

    re: closer to bee hives-
    did not know if bees are sensitive to noise, and thought if i started to squeal with the excitement of a kid i might make them excited too. =0) Since people did not invite me to stay closer, i did not.
    Must have been a wonderful experience to be a bee keeper.

    Thanks for coming by, and yes, i did have a great birthday. =0)
