Eventually the lovely seaside colors of your wreath will fade to soft beige, a color found everywhere in winter landscapes on the Cape and Islands. if you want something jazzier for the holidays you can work in sprigs of holly (fastened with floral pins) or add small wired together clusters of the beautiful blue juniper berries blooming in such profusion on our Eastern Red Cedars this fall. Or you can just enjoy the sand-hued simplicity of your wreath until next summer when your hydrangeas return to brighten summer days.
