I’m not one of those wide eyed movie star fans ( I don’t even own a television ) , but I am a huge fan of fabulous horticultural craftsmanship.
Each Christmas season I have to drive past the William's home to reach my partners parents home and each season I look forward to viewing jaw dropping floral craftsmanship by ways of the wreath that is perfectly placed on their front entry gate .
This year the wreath was not placed on the gate but on the curved stucco wall adjacent to the gate.
It is big - I’d estimate it to be about 6 feet in diameter.
And as always , it is unique.
This year it is crafted from red twig dogwood ( Cornus species ) , Aloe cuttings and a white berry twig branches.
In the past I have seen 5 to 6 foot diameter wreaths make of proteas, banksias, twisted madrone branches and exotic dried tropical fruits , nuts and foliage.
This year is no exception. Another great example of fine floral craftsmanship.
Merry Christmas to the William's family, and thank you for this yearly eye candy treat.
