Resting on our laurels

I recently learned that decorating with wreaths goes back to the Greeks and the Romans, and wreaths are symbols of harvest and festivity.  I see why I love wreaths.  You can find a wreath for every season of the year and every occasion.  It doesn't have to be Christmas.  See the following beautiful wreaths for inspiration for festive occasions you may be celebrating in the coming year.

1)  To me, this is a spring wreath.  Birds are nesting again and everything is so lush and green.  It's subtle and has a delicate look to it.
2)  This forsythia wreath screams spring.  For those who live in the north, can you picture a blanket of snow finally receding and the temperature begins to climb above freezing?  The flowers are beginning to pop.  First is the crocuses, then all of the sudden, the forsythia bushes are covered in bright yellow blossoms!
3)  Moving on to summer. Nothing says summer to me like warm air and lavender field.  This lavender wreath definitely celebrates summer.
4)  Although succulents are warm climate plants, I see them as all season due to their popularity as indoor plants.  This succulent wreath is just classy and goes with any home.
