The little crab apple trees are almost completely devoid of leaves, but there is a lot of fruit for the birds to feast on through the winter months.
As for me, this time of year, and any time of year for that matter, I use the branches as a framework to make wreaths.
The branches are very pliable and easy to shape.
A simple twisting and weaving and Voila! A Christmas wreath for the hood over the stove in my kitchen ~
I added a dried moss garland and some little apples. So simple, just the natural look that I wanted.
As I sit here writing this I am listening to a new Christmas Cd with a nice mix of music: The Piano Guys; A Family Christmas. A lovely addition to the festivities.
I hope that all of your holiday plans are progressing well ~ this is such a happy time of year.
