Wreath of the Day 2011 – What We Store

Some materials used by The Garden Club of the Back Bay are stored in our rented storage locker from year to year, if they are in good shape and not likely to crumble to dust.  We’ve found, to our dismay, that fruit doesn’t keep well (who would have thought bugs could find there way into a baggie?) and dried herbs become too fragile after a further year of drying out.  Pine cones, however, wear like iron, and we made good use of last season’s white pine cones in the wreath pictured below.  The bright, orange-red bow was a perfect match for the holly berries, as well.
