Holiday Decorating UP style


Lycopodium Obscurum  or Wolf’s Paw.  It’s a rhizome growing plant so it’s a very good idea to cut off each piece and not pull or tear it out of the ground.
It’s a great ground cover and a good signal of a healthy forest.  Teiko and I spent a nice afternoon in the Ottawa National Forest picking this cute plant for making a couple of Christmas wreathes.
I love the feathery texture of the branches and a different look from the regular pine bough wreaths sold everywhere.  This wreath is hanging at the office.
