Scavenged Finds: Branching Out

Ta-da! It’s been a while since I’ve spotted something in the wild. This time it’s a tree branch. Leaves and all. If my research (and by ‘research’ I mean a quick look on Google) serves me right, I believe this tree branch belongs to a Lemon Bottlebrush. I caught a glimpse of it just sitting there in the garden bed as I was heading to see a client. It was love at first sight. In the back of my mind, I knew I needed to take it home with me. After I finished with my client, I raced back to the garden bed and picked up this beauty to take home with me.

Here’s a quick snap I took the day I found it. The leaves are still luscious and green.

Here it is a few day later, as the leaves start to dry out and go from dark green to a lovely shade of silver-grey. I quite like the two-toned effect.

I feel pretty lucky to still have the bottlebrush attached to it.

And here it is over a week later. All the leaves have finished turning silver-grey. The bottlebrushes are still intact. And I still have no clue what to do with it. I’ve toyed with the idea of cutting it into two or three separate branches, but I couldn’t bring myself to chop it to bits. I might just pop it as is into a nice vase and display it somewhere in Hello HQ. Any ideas?

    Oh it looks so beautiful!!! I would have suggested the vase as well. Or maybe there’s a way to display it somewhere in the bathroom? I find natural things in bathrooms very beautiful. Or the window sill maybe?

      Thank you. I totally forgot about my poor branch. It’s still on the floor as I’m undecided on what to do with it. I don’t have space in my bathroom for it, but I might try the window sill.
