My wreath from last year wasn’t working. The picture below is how it looked on the front door last fall.
Truth be told, it wasn’t working for me last year either. I really didn’t care for the sunflowers, even though I was born in and grew up in and currently live in The Sunflower State, for heaven’s sake.
And when I pulled the wreath out of the basement this year, the sunflowers were even more sad looking, if you can believe that, and practically falling off. So I helped them the rest of the way and then tied a burlap ribbon I had into a bow to fill in where they had been.
And then I added the stuff I liked best from yet another fall wreath I had laying around and also some clippings from a crabapple tree and a couple of bushes in the yard.
I like it much, much, much better.
Happy first day of fall! Are you excited?
