Half of this arrangement I clipped from my neighborhood. Mostly I had permission. There is a fabulous acuba plant in a neighbor's yard - the house is on the market and empty so I figured the shrubs needed trimming. Right? The gorgeous burgundy nandina leaves and berries are from an empty lot. And the hellebores from another neighbor's yard. So beautiful. They inspired me to make this. If I can forage it, I do. I hate to pay for greenery that I can easily rustle up with some clippers. Plus I like being outside hunting for treasures like these. Keep your eyes open, you never know what you'll find. Enjoy.
