Article: Wonderful Weeds: How to Make a Winter Centerpiece From Wild Plants
Dea Frederick, MD (Zone 6a) This was a great photo-log training article - beautiful end result! Any more ideas on other weeds you've used in the past?
Thanks and get well soon :)
victorgardener Lower Hudson Valley , NY (Zone 6b) Great job, Melody! Feel better.
melody Benton, KY (Zone 7a) Common 'Burning Bush' is another winged twig that makes for lovely Weed Arrangements. Also, Sweet Gum seed balls are interesting too.
Large acorns are great in bowls, Giant Foxtail is found all across the country and will spray paint up lovely. Honey locust has a great 'thorny' profile that will be nice as a twig arrangement.
I also use dried, mature, okra pods. I was going to do a Christmas wreath for ya'll with the okra, but this car accident got in the way, So I'll save it for next year.
Islandshari Kwajalein Marshall Islands (Zone 11) Hi ya Mel! Just got a chance to read this...and what a joy it was! When you look at the prices that stores - even Hobby Lobby - want to charge for arrangements, your lovely "weed centerpiece" becomes even more lovely! Great job of showing folks that their winter gardens needn't be places of gloom and doom. Well done!
Heal well, and enjoy the holidays!
