😊 Merry Wreath-mas 🎄 ...
--by mindyjourney, posted Jan 8, 2023
After noticing the fresh evergreen swag at the library circulation desk, we were asked if we could drop off the payment for it at the greenhouse outside of town.
So grateful we did, because when we entered the greenhouse we were greeted by the fragrance of an old fashioned pine and evergreen holiday! It felt like we were in Santa’s decorating workshop with tables of pine and spruce boughs; the “elves” sporting sturdy gloves and wire cutters.
Seems this creative holiday decoration workshop is a profitable annual fundraiser for the local Mile High Gardening Club, and I knew nothing about it!
When I expressed a desire to buy one, I was informed that I should’ve ordered a long time ago…
❤️ But, Brenda - head “elf” (and sheep raiser/wool weaver who I had done a story on last year for the Center newsletter) offered, “I’ve got an extra wreath in my car, if you want it. Plus, I’ll put you on the list to remind you next year.”
Thrilled, I thanked Brenda and all the garden club “elves,” complimenting them on their beautiful work and wished them all very Merry Christmas! 🎄
*Everytime I mist the wreath, now gracing our front door, I silently thank Brenda 😊 and give myself a mental nudge to send her a Christmas card of appreciation.
