Last night was our MG'S Wreath making class. We had a lot of fun and everyone went home with a beautiful wreath they created themselves. But more important they learned a new skill. We have some people that come every year, not because they haven't learned to make a wreath,just for the fun of being together and creating.

Every Christmas the Scott County Master Gardeners hold a wreath making class for the public. We use live greenery and it is a BIG job to go out and gather the material. Today was the only day we were free to do this. So out to Judy's farm we went. Isn't this baby adorable!
It takes tons of greenery-a lot more than you would think to make wreaths. We have several varieties of cedar, pine and holly. We will also be getting trimmings from the Christmas tree stand. It is all unloaded at my house and sitting in the shade in water . Now it will be loaded and unloaded yet again at the Extension office for the class.We have cinnamon cider and Christmas music and the MG'S help the participants make their wreaths-lots of fun!
