Here are some highlights of what early autumn has looked like so far for me.
Due to a very warm September, my garden still thinks it is summer, so I have been enjoying my roses quite a lot. Everything in this arrangement is from my garden.
Flowers: honeysuckle, lemon, garden rose, tea rose, jasmine, iresine
I was pleasantly surprised to find peonies at the market this month – with all sorts of beautiful peonies coming from Chile. So, of course I took the opportunity to create an arrangement around this rich color pallete pairing tree peonies with these awesome carnations! The fuchsia is a touch from my own garden.
Flowers: peony, carnation, rose, ranunculus, silene, zinnia, privet, sumac, astilbe
Flowers in a grocery bag. No, I did not pick them up from the market like this!
