A few blocks away there is a magnolia tree which appears to be all green but is dropping yellow/brown glossy leaves in the gutter at an amazing rate.
Tonight we took a walk to collect the leaves. When we left, the sky was pretty.
When we got home, the sky was prettier.
In about 15 minutes we made a wreath of the magnolia leaves. I had a straw wreath form on hand and just wrapped twine around it attaching a leaf or two with each wrap of the twine. At the end I tucked the stems under where I started and called it a day. A bit uneven but it'll do. It's already hanging on my door.
Those leaves are so shiny they're hard to photograph!
Thanks for all the ideas on the white wreath...I'm mulling my options but I've got some time now since this one will be up at least through Thanksgiving!
