Do you know what I realized today? That most of the holidays are decked out in natural materials.
Christmas is filled with evergreen trees, wreaths, berries and pine cones. Pumpkins, corn and all those neat little gourds cover our porches and table for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Lilies bloom at Easter. Even blueberries and raspberries often cover sweet cakes on the Fourth of July.
I guess we've always decorated with what was at hand. I don't think I've really appreciated that until now.
Please enjoy these lovely natural winter images by Carolyn Cochrane Fine Art Photography. They showcase this season perfectly.
