As Team Fine Foliage races toward 2016, we’re busy elves getting each branch, leaf, twig and bough just right for all of the excitement that the upcoming year will bring. With that in mind, it seems fitting to take an up close look at Holly (Ilex) or plants that are “holly-like” for one of the last leafy posts of 2015.
We are always preaching the art of noticing the details on the plants you use in your landscape, in winter it is particularly important. We don’t have the big abundant borders to appreciate from far away so walking the landscape and taking note of the leaf shapes, plant forms, change in colors etc. is a big deal!
You’re RIGHT! That’s not a holly above! But, we’re glad you were paying attention to detail. 🙂 This cute as can be miniature garden was created by the queen of miniature gardens and author of the best-selling “Gardening in Miniature“ from Timber Press.
Team FINE FOLIAGE wishes you all the joys of the season and we look forward to bringing you design deliciousness as we look ahead to 2016! CHEERS!!!
