Autumn and Winter Berries
The hedgerows and countryside seem to be teeming with berries at the moment; there is lots of Holly laden with ruby red berries ready for Christmas! Is it is a premise of a very cold winter? Ivy berries are my favourite wild berries; beautifully blue in perfect spheres, absolutely gorgeous with white roses, blue thistles and of course with other Christmas foliage and Red Roses. The blue colour on the berries seem particulary early this year and I picked these and turned them in this lovely wreath with some slateblue hydrangeas which are still going strong in my garden. This wreath was for a sad ocassion but would not look out of place with a few candles for Advent placed on a coffee table.
