Happy December 1st!

To kick off one of my favorite months of the year,
I wanted to share this wintry wreath I painted.

with a dusting of snow
frozen on the ground,
we went out in the woods behind our house
and trimmed a few bright boughs
of gleaming holly,
pulled down a vine or two
of deep green ivy.
We brought them indoors,
to brighten our rooms
during this cold and festive month,
and to be a reminder
of the vibrant life
and wild beauty,
that can still be found
in the depths of Winter.

The Yule Wreath is now available in my shop
(which will be closing for the holidays on Friday, December 12).
