Bay Wreath 1PPD 12/2/09

Last year, all December I said I was going to make a wreath, and I never got around to it. Sunday, I did it in less than 15 minutes, while Dad was cutting tiles that I needed to finish up the day's roofing.
We have a few bay laurel trees on the west side of the property; I've always rather liked the spicy scent (and appreciate the fact that they don't throw acorns everywhere like the oaks do). This being California Bay, the smell might be a bit powerful for inside, but it's perfect on my front door. 15 minutes to holiday cheer! I'm glad I built my wreath at last.
