A Southern style Christmas in my garden….

December 11, 2015

Since I skipped decorating my garden for Christmas this year (been focusing on decorating inside for Christmas) I thought I would repost this from Christmas Garden past….Happy Holidays!  Peace and Happiness!

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I’m a bit late in posting photo’s of my Christmas garden this year.   Here’s a peek….

Note: All Christmas arrangements, containers, wreaths and photos were designed and made by me (Brenda Addington) …The Graceful Gardener.

I love the Christmas wreaths I made five years ago. I spruced them up a bit this year adding more pines cones and evergreen sprays.

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my garden to yours……
