cotton bolls and other acts of nature

Lately, every time I walk through my garage my eyes are drawn to my Autumn wreath with it's red, orange, and yellow leaves attached to a grapevine form with some dried green moss tucked in here and there. My favorite book about wreaths, which is really about wreaths and swags and garlands, is Great American Wreaths: The Best of Martha Stewart Living, created by Martha Stewart and Hannah Milman. The book features 51 wreaths, one for each state and the District of Columbia. Who else would have thought of a wreath made with cotton bolls?

In the meantime, my Autumn wreath will wait for the baby birds nesting in my Summer wreath to leave home. A picture then.
