The Trustees are celebrating the Winter Solstice on December 21 at a number of different venues. Appleton Farms in Hamilton and Ipswich is the site of a Winter Solstice Walk from 5 – 6:30, and Fruitlands Solstice Stroll in Harvard from 4:30 – 6:30 features a candlelit walk followed by hot chocolate and s’mores around the outdoor firepit. The Old Manse in Concord hosts Illumination Night with hot cider and rum, and Castle Hill on the Crane Estate in Ipswich is where you’ll get to attend the somewhat strenuous Dunes to Tavern Solstice Stroll (6:30 – 9:30). Powisset Farm in Dover will hold Mindfulness on the Farm (bring a mat), as well as a Fondue Dinner, and for those near Governor Hutchinson’s Field in Milton, enjoy a fire dance performance at Solstice Illumination Night from 6 – 8. Chestnut Hill Farm in Southborough holds a Farmstead Solstice Stroll, and both Francis William Bird Park in Walpole and the Ward Reservation in Andover and North Andover are putting on Winter Solstice Celebrations. Fees and times vary, so to check them all out visit www.thetrustees.org.

We love celebrating all the winter holidays, and we do many “non-specific” wreaths with a winter theme, or a gilded look, but some of our most successful stress the blue and silver of Hanukkah. The work below symbolizes the holiday of lights very well.

We store some of our leftover supplies from year to year at our storage unit in Brighton – primarily extra ribbon, wire, tools, easels, tables, and picks. For a while, we had an oversupply of glass balls in a variety of hues. Glass balls can be useful when a shot of color is needed in a wreath, but because we are mostly known for our natural decorations, we use them sparingly. A buying moratorium was called on glass balls in 2017, which we complied with until we spotted the new carnival glass balls, and also an iridescent peridot color which we felt we couldn’t live without. Once again we stored our extra glass ornaments, but we are happy to continue exploring new materials in our designs. Below is a wreath which incorporated the carnival glass balls in a design for a customer who will hang the wreath on her Victorian home.

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster presents its annual Owls of the World event on Wednesday, December 27 at three times, 10, 12:30, and 3. Have you ever seen an owl up close? Join naturalist Marcia Wilson and photographer Mark Wilson as they introduce you to live owls of New England and beyond…including the Great Horned Owl, the Snowy Owl and the Eurasian Eagle Owl. The owls you will see, due to injury or mishap, are unable to survive in the wild. Learn about their field marks and natural history. Everyone is treated to a hooting lesson, as well as tips on attracting and protecting the owls near you. $15 at the door, online $10 for Museum members, $12 for nonmembers.
