The other day I went out to the trees behind our home looking for some fresh branches to fill a vase I had. Actually, it was an apothecary jar and the ornate top had been broken. Instead of throwing the whole thing out, I decided to turn the base into a vase.
I wrapped twine around the top and bottom about an inch or so wide and called it good!
Anyhow… when I was looking for just the right branches to cut, I noticed one small bush actually had buds on some of it’s branches! Wow! Buds already in the beginning of February??? It’s been -25!
I cut a few to bring in the house and warm up with the hopes of tricking these branches into thinking it was time to leaf out.
… and it is working! :0)
It’s been too cold to paint lately and sadly, my garage is not heated. So what is a girl to do while waiting for warmer weather?
That’s all I’m going to share for now… All I have to say is, it’s really pretty!
