After supper I went out to cut some Ivy. I do not need very much. I like to root a few stems in case someone asks for a cutting. I also like to have a small amount for arrangements.
The yellow roses I bought last week for Thanksgiving are in full bloom. I re-cut all the stems and made 16 arrangements using Holly and Ivy. Next week I will get pink roses, my December flower. My husband brought in a few pine boughs for the cranberry glass vases. These were his Grandmother's. I keep them on top of her china cabinet. The small pine stems I put into mini vases. These I will tuck into tiny spots. I can add tiny flowers later.
The pine branches that I trimmed and a few pine cones went into a glass basket, natural potpourri. When we bring in the pine the house smells like Christmas.
