Floral Wreath

A few weeks ago I was reading the blog of Whole Latte Life, she had been out for an early spring walk and taken a picture of a floral wreath on a door. The thought came to me I always hang up a Christmas wreath why not hang a floral wreath on my front door. So I decided that I could put together one myself. Last Saturday was beautiful sunny day, so I drove to a craft store in a nearby town. There I bought three garlands of silk flowers, one wreath frame, one red butterfly and some gardening wire. Here you see my first endeavor at creating a wreath. It is not as elaborate as the one in Joanne's blog, but I like it. Reflected in the picture is the still starkly bare branches of the trees.

Today I looked outside and saw one of the many beds of daffodils were in bloom, but right now they are being weighed by rain. I'll take a picture of them in the next few days.
