Festive Willow Wreaths I

Wednesday, December 6th 2017

After last night's windy weather we were not overly surprised to find the moth trap completely empty this morning. Thankfully there have been no further disappointments, with many excellent wreaths being created during the first of our festive willow wreath making events.

After an hour or so of wrestling willow whips into a suitable ring-shaped foundation we stopped for a few mince pies before venturing out into the warm winter sun to search for greenery with which to spruce up our wreaths.

You could hear a pin drop in the Field Centre while everyone worked in quiet concentration; fastidiusly adorning their willow ring foundations with all manner of cones, pines and berries.

After everyone was satisfied, and happy with their wreaths, all that was left to do was to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and get started tidying the place up!
