A room needs life. Fresh flowers are the quickest, surest way to make that miracle happen. My favorites are from my own yard. Nearly all winter there has been some small speck of a blossom that could be brought in to sparkle the space.
If your garden has nothing yet to offer, or the cold, the grey or the snow cannot hold a bloom, consider just greens. Nearly everyone has an evergreen shrub or a conifer within snipping distance of the house. A plant that has gone rangy awaiting the spring pruning was my target of Things I get to do today. The branch lopping over on to the sidewalk found its way into this arrangement. Don't even miss the flowers.
