Spring wreath ~

Although we are (finally) having a bit of rain today full fledged Spring has definitely arrived. The rain only makes things better and the garden absolutely loves it...I hope we get more.

 I couldn't work in the garden, it was too wet, but I could add a little floral interest to the front porch...

I made a new spring wreath for the front door. I love to make wreaths they are so easy and I like to have something pretty on the porch to greet visitors.

My front door is unique in that it has a little glass door set in. I can peek out at visitors and I can also open it...I think a wreath frames it nicely.

I put this one together by wrapping it with a garland and then adding a few accents. The little watering cans were actually bought as Christmas decorations, but I like them better used this way.

I store my wreaths in oversized trash bags, it works out well, they can either be hung or laid flat.

What about a summer wreath? I am thinking of using little birdhouses, that might be fun.

Thank you for visiting, come back soon
