Also, although I love have flowers in the house, I don't grow them particularly at the allotment, and resent spending the money. And I don't feel good about the carbon footprint either.
But the artificial wreath that I hang on the front door year in, year does look a bit boring, and so this year - with a hedge of conifers at my disposal - I've tried to come up with something with a bit of a personal touch.
I took some cuttings...
... looked in the decorations trunk...
... and came up with a spray of green with red ribbon and mini-baubles.
The shape looks rather like a Christmas tree, and I am undecided whether to give it a trim to make it more rounded in shape.
So apart from a bit of minor tinkering, that's my week 49 Challenge done!
