Wreath-making at Willow Oak Farm!

Willow Oak Farm is a flower and herb farm located not too far from me.  I grew up in that neighborhood, went to hgh school there and never knew this place existed!  It's located almost directly across from where my husband works.  Do you think he'd ever mention it??  No!  Well, this morning, I went with two friends, Gloria and Theresa, there to make a fall harvest wreath.  I have never made this kind of a wreath before but I figured I'd give it a try!

Willow Oak is a very rustic place and what a great place!  Our "class" was in the greenhouse.  In a little over 2 hours we created some very beautiful wreaths. Each one using the same flowers but each one so totally different!  It was a slightly chilly morning and, upon arrival, we were offered hot chai tea.   Yumm!

Here's mine hanging on the wall.  I just couldn't get a good picture of it...it really IS prettier in person!  I think I need to ask Santa Claus for a new (better!) digital camera!!

 
Thanks to Gloria for taking pictures!!
 
I think we'll be going back to Willow Oak to make a Christmas wreath.  I can't wait!!!
