What beauty even a few branches of green can bring. Happy New Year. May we all be this greenness and hope to the world, despite the gloominess around us.

Best wishes for the new year to you both. I like ending and beginning on a fresh green note.

Happy New Year Linda!


Oh I liked your black cloud interpretation too, Linda, as well as the oh-so-useful fern and arum foliage in your lovely slender vase. Thanks for sharing your artistic bits and pieces as well as the contents of your vases


A happy and healthy new year to you and Mark! Love the dark cloud sculpture and its shelf companions. The black leaf was gorgeous but the green replacement illustrates the hope for the coming year well.

When the dark cloud of the Bergenia becomes brittle to the touch, I hope you'll ceremoniously crush it into pieces, Linda. The green foliage welcomes the fresh energy and ideas that I hope will guide us through the new year. Best wishes for better on all fronts in the new year.

I like that dark cloud. It is too bad that all that is predicted is more darkness to come. I hope our gardens can be places of respite. Amazing that you have that much green in your garden at this time. Happy Healthy New Year.

i have another bouquet that I picked from the garden on 12/21 that is still going strong. An unusual year for sure.

Yes, I'd have to agree that 2018 was less than stellar--for so many personal and other reasons. Still trying to find the beauty and joy in simple things. It can be tough sometimes to maintain optimism. Your interpretation is fabulous. Here's to more "green" in 2019.


What an interesting look for the bergenia leaf!
The new arrangement is stunningly fresh for New Year's. I wonder where this winter will go, I'm not even going to think about the whole year yet!


That’s a really interesting and thought provoking combination. Wishing you a very Happy New Year. Karen
