OK, I won't mention the 'C' word but, if you are thinking that you might like to decorate your house with wreath shaped ornaments in a few months', now is the time to make them.  

The weather has been perfect for long, sappy growth on all sorts of plants, the ones drying (top) are some birch from a few weeks ago and some ivy from today but clematis, grape vine and even bind weed work well . Best to form the wreath while the stems are still soft and green. Store them somewhere they can dry out. If the leaves fall off, who cares, they can go on the compost heap. Decorate with natural materials and you can use them as firelighters after twelfth night.
