Branching Out

I am so glad February is a short month.  No offense to all the February birthdays, the only redeeming aspects of this dark and cold month actually, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for having your birthday in February.  Aside from the birthdays I have little to look forward to and just do a countdown to March 1st.  Really, I wish I could just hibernate.  Maybe Florida next year!

February is also the month I miss my garden the most!  I start dreaming of tulips and daffodils.  While waiting impatiently for this glorious event, I like using branches and twigs in lieu of flowers to bring the outdoors in.   You can collect them on your nature walks or purchase them at a craft store.  Branches can be interesting, they add a sculpture like quality to any lonely corner patiently waiting for summer’s gladioli or peonies.

Here are some of my favorite arrangements:

And if your want to really “branch out” and take it to the the next level here are some great branch ideas:

Hope you have fun “Branching Out”  and remember, spring is just around the corner!
