The holly and the ivy …

This morning, the Murley Hall was nearly buried under a pile of delicious-smelling pine, holly, ivy, rosemary, bay and so much more!

Shirley led us, first by demonstrating her amazing eye for floral arrangements, whipping up a stunning display in a matter of minutes, and then by patiently helping us create our own masterpieces.

Aided by Lis’s endless supply of cake and mince pies, we all worked quietly and companiably, with only the occasional burst of a Christmas carol from ‘the naughty corner.’

By the end of the day, we went home with gorgeous Christmas wreaths and arrangements, surpassing all of our expectations.
