I was assigned nature for this week's post. Um, my first thought was outhouses but I don't think that is what was meant. I'm supposed to be decorating with nature, so here it goes!

One of the most beautiful things to me is what nature can do to flowers! Always boggles my mind.
From Teleflora comes this beautiful Christmas cactus:
One of my all time favorites, holly! Check out this web site I found that has some great items made from holly, Mill Creek Holly Farm:
There's nothing like fresh evergreens, can't you just smell them now?
I love live evergreen ropes for railings!
Along those same lines is a twig swag from Jeffrey Alans:
And here is a wonderful holiday swag for your mailbox!
I've always enjoyed paperwhites at Christmas! I force bulbs starting on Thanksgiving Day and have them for Christmas!
Here is an arrangement using Paperwhites from Martha Stewart:
Stop by Barbotts to see all the amazing poinsettias! I have a hard time picking out a favorite but I do like the painted ones I've seen around!
Can't leave out Amaryllis! This is a favorite gift from my Mom each year but then never look like this one!
This one comes from Jackson & Perkins:
From Black Forrest Decor, check out these birch candles!
Take a look at the snow currant collection from Pottery Barn!
Let's not forget our fine, feathered friends:
Enjoy your holiday season!
