Fine Gardening – Issue 173

When it comes to crafts, I’m pretty much a lost cause. Maybe that’s a bit overstated. I can knit, sort of—as long as all you want for Christmas is a pot holder, scarf, or simple blanket (which is basically a large pot holder, if you think about it).

Perhaps I honed my skills because I hate seeing the treasures of the late-fall/early-winter garden go to waste. For me, creating wreaths out of brightly colored branches, unique seed heads, or blushing blossoms is a way of preserving all the hard work I put into caring for the garden throughout the year.
