Deck the Halls...

Well, actually no holly here though the holly trees round here are full of berries.
At the green market however...

there are wreaths galore

and garlands

and berries

bows offered if needed.

There is a strange pale sort of lavender

and  the hellebores - also called Lenten or Christmas roses...

 and skinny trees  - the kind I like better than fat ones.

Last of all a wreath made entirely of herbs.
So pretty
So practical.


  1. Love these wreaths!
    Sounds nice to walk at green market.
    Wishing you all a lovely week
    Kisses to dear Buster.

  2. I love wreaths and there were some beautiful ones, but a herb wreath for the kitchen has got to be the top of the I want list, the perfect gift for a chef...

  3. Helleborus niger I think, or Christmas Rose.

  4. So many Christmas delights! I wish I could smell those green balsam or pine wreaths - my favorite Christmas fragrance. And speaking of Christmas, I truly enjoyed Jane in Winter, and loved (among many other things) that the hymn "In the Bleak Mid-Winter" was being sung in the church toward the end of the story.

    1. Obviously one of my favorite carols too - so very evocative of being chilled to the bone....!

  5. Very pretty Elizabeth and so, so creative!

  6. Such a lush collection of greenery! Thanks for the virtual shopping trip! We don't get much of that here. But, then we have other advantages that aren't available in a city.

  7. Elizabeth, I'm looking forward to visiting this farmers market with you tomorrow, to see the greenery, and perhaps some red berries, too. My apartment needs a little touch of Christmas now.


  8. Oh Elizabeth, what a wonderful post !
    Wreath wreaths everywhere.
    I like the skinny ones too but we mostly have the chubby ones here.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. So interesting when I live surrounded by holly and ivy and grow our own Christmas tree to see all that greenery brought into the heart of the city. Lovely.

  10. Love all the wreaths! (And I like skinny trees better than fat ones, too :)


I look forward to hearing from you!
