A cedar, cocculus, and variegated ivy garland adorns an information bookshelf beneath a photograph by Marlin Lord. Our ancestors knew that the darkest part of the year demands a celebration. We all need to know that the light will inevitably return despite the gloom. A 15′ white pine and cedar garland, swag, and wreath make this Parkfairfax porch festive. Winter in white Dutch antique hydrangea, a single jade rose, and magnolia tastefully pay homage to the season.
