Spring Wreath

Spring Wreath

The weather here has been very un-Springlike.  It has been cold and windy.  I almost forgot.  March is supposed to be windy.  We were lucky that last week's snowstorm gave us only a dusting of snow.

It is the first day of Spring, so no matter the weather I have to put the Spring wreath on the front door.  If the weather had been nicer it would have been out there sooner.

I started with this galvanised metal contraption.  I bought it last week when I had lunch with some friends at a favourite lunch and shopping location, White Feather Country Store.  My friends teased me that it looked like a bedpan.  I admit that it does, but it really isn't.

I had flower bushes so I cut all the stems off each bush.  I also filled the container with dry foam and then covered it with moss.
Not seen in the photo, I added a string through the holes in the back of the container to hang it.

Yesterday we walked down by the pond.  It was the first time we had been there since December.  Since Christmas, there has been too much snow to walk across the field until now.  By next week it will be too muddy if we get the warmer weather that has been forecast.

Sasha is always ready for a walk and was happy to come along.

Here is a look at the bunkie and this bush is loaded with pussy-willows.  Naturally, I cut some to take back to the house.

This is definitely a sign of Spring.  Also, the Grackles and Robins are back.  I'm pretty sure the Mourning Doves were trying to build a nest today.

I tried to group some of the flowers such as the tulips.  Some of the other stems were placed randomly throughout the arrangement.

I had lots of flowers so they are packed in tight.

A little nest is tucked in between the purple flowers and the tulips.

A closer look at the nest.

Under the nest a few pussy-willow branches.

Okay Spring, I am ready.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love the unusual shape and material of the galvanized metal "contraption". The plentiful blossoms in beautiful colors stand out so well against the metal. This makes such a unique door decoration for springtime.

    1. Hi Carol
      Thank you so much. It was fun to put together.

  2. I love your Spring Flowers Wreath, using the galvanized container is a great idea. Thank you for sharing your blog post with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Nicole.
