...and I will say it again. Nothing gives a room a little warmth more that a cutting from the garden. No matter the season, I love to clean the house, then go outside and take a few cuttings to display.
We have had such a beautiful fall here in NC, and I wanted to enjoy it inside. So I cut a few branches from the dogwood tree in our backyard.
This is what I call the last hoorah. Our Susanquas have bloomed for the last month. Each week, I take a fresh cutting to have a few flowers inside. Most people refer to these as Camellias, but they are their fall blooming cousins. I love them because of the evergreen foliage and the fact that not much else is blooming this time of year.
Every southern garden needs a magnolia tree. And it doesn't have to be Christmas to enjoy them indoors. I take cuttings when they are in bloom in the spring and throughout the year because the waxy leaves are so pretty.
So are you ready for Thanksgiving? I have been working on a little project and just finished last night when it was too dark to take pictures. So come back tomorrow for a table runner tutorial AND a little surprise.
