On this winter day of cold and gray, the girls and I slipped on our boots, gloves , scarves and jackets. We walked towards the woods with a basket in our hands a pair of snips. Not sure if we can find enough greenery to make a very large wreath, we continue walking down paths of golden weeds.
Upon entering into the woods, we pulled branches of wild blackberries off our clothes that wanted to go with us. Climbing over trees that have fallen across the paths, we soon found ourselves hopping from rock to rock surrounded by the slow rush of the creek. We find our way through this little patch of woods that sits at the end of our land.
Shorty upon entering into the woods, suddenly, we heard birds flew away as we continue to walk with the sounds of dried leaves crunching beneath our feet.
With each path we took, we found several different kinds of cedar trees. Filling our baskets with snips from each tree, we spotted some wild red berries near by. The basket soon was over run with berries, cedar, cypress, and Douglas firs.
In the warmth of the kitchen we separated the greenery into piles across the old farmhouse table, and began to assemble our wreath. What a wonderful time we had stomping through the woods together while making sweet memories and creating a wreath from God's nature.
Thank you, for coming along with us for a walk in the woods.
