Appreciate Wreaths

Holiday wreaths fit happily within the realm of ‘Pleasures of Plants,’ so one late December day I photographed several in my neighborhood.

The longer I looked, the more I appreciated their common and distinctive features. All are circular, continuous, connected, intertwined. Some are mostly evergreens, while others keep bare branches.

Pine cones, flowers, berries and other aspects of the natural world appear in many wreaths. Ribbons, cute creatures and ornaments distinguish others.

All add welcome and grace to doorways. Many enhance design elements around them.

You can imagine or remember their aromas and their textures in your hands.

These few selected from my strolling through the streets are ones that lent themselves to iPhone captures, while others are still out there waiting for better portraits.

Has my tangent come full circle or will it continue in some way? For now I’ll wait for words, ideas, and images about wreaths around you!
