I recently met a new neighbor--I'm the new one actually but we met for the first time a few nights ago. She knocked on my door and offered me branches with tiny pine cones, pine boughs & moss and told me that I could have some if I wanted any of it. Another neighbor who speaks English came out to help explain what I was to do with my newly acquired bits & pieces of plant life. She told me that every year, the Danish children make these arrangements that involved candles and moss and other odds and ends. I left with my bag of plants determined to make something.

Before starting the candle arrangement, I excitedly put the pine branches around the house. I had looked at a few fallen branches in the woods but had yet to collect them. Then, after buying a few candles and lighting the moss over the sink to see just how flammable it was, I set out to make my 'plant arrangement'. I definitely don't think it's a masterpiece and would never leave the candles unattended, but I am certainly happy that I tried.
