Yule decorations

Picked from the hedgerows near our village, the simple foliage beautifully decorates my Yule wreath. Below is my heart of Yule indoor wreath. I love the simple art of wreath making, anyone can do it by walking about the countryside and  selecting fresh foliage some with berries to cut gently with secateurs.   Remember to thank nature for it’s offerings to you and you’ll enjoy your foliage and berries for the entire festive season. You can also attach pearls and other crystals, dried fruit and ribbons or burlap.

Magnificent Magnolias


Magnolia Stillata, so whistful, trailing old bricks.

Magnolia Stillata, so whistful, trailing old bricks.

Magnificent Magnolias,

Boldly looming.

Unfolding like fine

Scented silk.

A festival of pink petal plumes,

Soothing,

Hearts of spring.

How grand is this gorgeous Georgian property, framed with a confetti of delicately scented Magnolia I drive past this house every day. I love the gates and front door too.

The new home fireplace. A beautiful Victorian original , which now makes our cottage so cosy.

Love the contrast of the  flowers against the tiles of my little Victorian out building.

Such a beautiful surprise, a fabulous flowering Magnolia in our courtyard.

And the meandering branches and their natural pattern, juxtapositioned against the roof of my Victorian cottage.

Just popped in the photos of my fireplace to update you on the cottage renovations and to apologise for not posting! ย There are so much wonderful changes as spring gets under way with the warmer weather, here in the South UK. I hope all of you living in other countries where it is cooler at the moment are are keeping cosy. ๐Ÿ™‚
