oil on canvas
by painter Gaye Adams
The eucalyptus tree below, no less grand than that in any painting. The homeowners kindly allowed me to harvest some of its leaves for use in our holiday decorations.
Generously sending me home with boughs of branches. This family definitely on our cookie list this year!
The scented eucalyptus mixed with a little smilax from our own yard...
...and wired to a ready-made fraser fir garland.
Ready to be hung...
...and draped around our door.
The smell of the eucalyptus and fraser fir so pleasant, I brought some inside...decking the entrance hall.
Treats for little guests who may stop by hung upon the stair.
And hung upon its branches, two little angels.
