Very nice Badger Very Happy . I make a wreath most years but my trouble is finding some conifer. There are some trees at the chicken farm down the road but it's trying to grab some when no-one's looking .... Embarassed .

I'm very lucky with conifers, I have two 30ft wide Pfitzer Junipers which provide all the greenery I need, plus 10 acres of Red pine, Balsam fir, White pine, Paper birch and Larch.. We have a great native holly call Ilex Verticillata which drops its leaves and has masses of berries, makes for wonderful highlights in Yule settings.
