Winter Bouquet



To welcome winter, we made this bouquet from some fallen branches we found in the horticulture garden. There are flowers from Lara, Jakey, and a few from some visiting friends. Maybe we should ask everyone who comes by to contribute one?

It's interesting - we made one of these last year, and this year Lara was suddenly self-conscious about how her flowers would look, to the point that she asked me to draw some flower outlines for her to color in before she would draw her own. It seems so, so early for self-criticism to already be rearing its powerful head...

Love this idea, especially asking guests to make a flower to add to it! What a terrifically innovative Guest Book it would make! You could change it each year ... or just take down the flowers .. or, make a whole heap of a few different flowers & ask the guests to draw or colour them in ... & initial & date the back! :)

Wow! I do love the uniqueness of the idea. Creating something that would add beauty in a particular place. More of this soon. Good luck!
