wyndyacre: It is too bad you are off in Canada and not in NE Ohio, because the thought of all those branches makes me sigh. (I have some cut grapevine in my yard if anyone wants it! And I would looove white birch branches!)
This article gives me some good ideas to further my use of branches and twigs. Thanks!

Great article, thanks for the ideas. We grow decorative branches so we love the idea of adding them to urns for height and colour! These are some nice examples, especially like the curly willow with cones at the base. The Yellow dogwood arrangement you show also has fantail willow and pussy willow in it which is a great addition to a winter urn because the pussy willows will open in the spring.
