Home Staging and the fall leaf project: never ending until the snow blankets the lawn!!! Which brings me to another subject I often visit—those front step pots. My mums and pumpkins are ready for the compost bin. With this morning’s snow, I am ready to dive into the winter greenery, berries, and sticks. I like a lot of texture in my greens: spruce, fir, cedar, boxwood, pine. I also like contrasting twigs: white birch, redwood dogwood, yellow curly willow. Berries are great for color accents, however come January they are usually squashed into my welcome mat…citron, red, deep purple,…some years greens and twigs are just enough.
