Chili Bouquet

I saw this interesting bouquet where dried chili peppers were used to add some colors to the yellow blooms. Since winter is here, there aren't many fresh flowers at the market any more.

So what is your favorite thing about the winter season?

This is a lovely idea to brighten up a table.

I like to wear cozy clothes, so cold weather is perfect for that. 8^) I also enjoy voting on the monthly CDP theme day ballots, and February is waiting for your decision. 6^)

A mix of vegetables and flowers is always attractive. This bouquet particularly so - actually, I thought for a second the chili peppers were prawns but don't tell anyone...

My favourite thing about the winter season - here anyway - is the wonderful clear blue skies - they've not arrived yet tho. Today it's raining and it's cold and it's windy.

Wood fires in the stove and eggnog with brandy, or perhaps a rum-cow. But you don't drink, so I'll spare you the details :)

That bouquet is lovely ... a use of peppers I've not seen before.

I had never seen chili pepper and dandelions before (are those dandelions?)

And I'm with USelaine - cosy clothes are my favourite thing about winter.

Probably the holiday spirit. But I HATE the winter.

This is a great bouquet Ming! Winter? I endure it . Luckily in the south it's not too bad. Can't wait for spring which is the lovliest season in Alabama. Today the wind chill was in the 20's this a.m. Too cold pour moi. I've lived in Wisconsin and Iowa each for one winter. NEVER AGAIN!
