Doc Darling, eation the pine swag, he undid the bow!
Magnolia favorite ingredient to use in arrangements.
Spruce, airy, & a lovely accent.
Simply a southern pine tree limb, I added pinecone limbs.
Holly, ouch it pricks!!! A very unfriendly thing to work with.
He is wanting to eat that magnolia swag! I did not know it was an edible arrangement! He does eat it
Doc said "What, bamboo is a grass! I can eat it."
Simple applications of limbs that I plucked.
Good bye Doc.(: xoxoxo

    What great natural materials, Lee Anne, and so good of Doc to do all that posing. I'm going to have to take a good look at my magnolias and convince myself they need a trimming!

  • Lee Anne, I am so excited to have you on America's Garden Rebel this Sunday morning at 11:30 !I have so much to ask you about the interior design process. As you know I'm your biggest fan as I love the flow and permanence and practical nature of your designs. We will also talk about Christmas decor inside and outside the house. That horse of yours should be in the movies, he's a gem! The central Florida Garden Rebel show is on every Saturday from 7 to 9 am, on FM 96.5 and am 580 WDBO,or . America's Garden Rebel is in every region of the country every Sunday 10 to 12 noon eastern time. Or everyone can listen at and, remember everyone, "Plant the green side up!"

  • Wonderful to hear from you this morning! Doc will be happy to trim them into shape for you!

    Aww what a sweet horse and I love the decoration you put on his stall and the spruce. Thanks for sharing! :)

  • This is so nice, I like natural decor simple easy and can be found right in your backyard!

    my poor shrubs never get trimmed until winter decoration time-at least it is less plant stress right? dont forget about all of the lovely colored barks of the red-twigs, kerria, and willows out there! i am curious of the photo labeled spruce tho.. it looks much more like something in the cypress family.

  • Need to be careful with some pine varieties around your horse. Some can cause colic in the horse. Pretty however.

  • It is a cypress Anna, thank you!!! I am design, not garden, that is my excuse anyway & I am sticking to it!! Thank you Woodbridge, Doc is a pig & Greg is very careful with his feed & care, it is his baby!

  • LeeAnn, my mom loves horses, I should show her these pics when she visits again.

    I love this, and am a horse lover too .... Doc is awesome, and so are your ideas. I wish Magnolias were still green here this time of year ..... I like the idea of decorating the mailbox.

  • Very nice. My favorites to use are magnolia and I just put in a realistic fake flower, and I love the softness of nandina branches with the berries. Although, I do have to compete with the birds for this.

  • love it Lee Anne! Hilarious. laughing out loud.

  • Great to hear from you Sheila. I am glad you laughed, I get tickled every time I think of it, he is into everything!

    @Culpepper Carpets and Interiors, Inc. - horses are like cats, they will try to eat everything! Love Doc, handsome chestnut, love that extra white snip down on his nose. I don't even decorate my house (see the cat comment) so decorating at the stable is too much fun!
