One of the things I inherited from my mom was the love of nature and gardening. For as long as I can remember my mother would put together simple flower arrangements during the holidays using evergreens and dried seed pods which she had collected during the summer and then spray painted with gold paint. Dried seed pods are beautiful as they are.
