The holiday decorations are going up around Northfield. Today, I watched (from the cozy confines of the Bittersweet Cafe) as a crew from the Archer House hung a swag of greenery and decorated the window boxes along the railing with greenery, red twig dogwood, dried flowers and bows. Elsewhere, the local beautification crew has filled the planters on Bridge Square with greenery and seasonal decorations as well as the big planter near the Northfield Public Library.
I haven’t put my holiday containers together, yet, but I expect to do it next week, and have already gathered some birch logs and other materials to give it a different look. This birch log snowman is part of the holiday decorations at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
What will your holiday containers look like this year?
