Making centrepieces for holiday feasts is a great reason to explore trails or to visit friends with great gardens. Stop in with some homemade jams, pickled beets, or holiday cookies. Mentioning that you were thinking about making a centrepiece may inspire them to join you (and let you take a look at what they have hanging around in their gardens). Spending time with friends and family, sharing and giving, isn’t this what the holidays are all about?
