Christmas...wreath and such...ideas...

A few ideas to make a wreath for your front door for Xmas or all year round. I love the idea to use  Cypresses, as I have not the traditional fir trees in the garden but many cypresses in different colours to use. Generally I  like to use or add my own ideas, yet sometimes one needs a push and a shove, here are some nice inspirations.

In Australia, the seasons are defined by grouping the calendar months in the following way: Spring - the three transition months September, October and November. Summer - the three hottest months December, January and February. Autumn - the transition months March, April and May. 

Summer may arrive with hot and humid days. Thunder, clouds and torrential rain.

Song of Summer;
The subtropics are  hot and dry; 
soil and plants are thirsty and get thirstier every day. 
Then the clouds roll in black and heavy with moisture. 
The first drops bless the soil; 
then the heavens open up in earnest. 
sheets of driving rain obscure any view. 
Earth  is caught in this wonderful dance of water, 
 soaked up quickly by a greedy dry soil, 
leaving no puddles.
When the rains come,
life is beginning again,
 this is summer. Ts

Roses and summer, petals burned, falling falling;  strong fragrance emphasized by heat and sun. No regrets, summer means summer..
