As the summer heat and colorful blooms fade simultaneously, you can bring in the bounty of fall. While the greens are crisp, the flowers are perky and the scents are still sweet create bountiful bouquets.
Catch the last sweetness of summer and bring in those cut flowers, create a display of seed heads, or gather grasses in a vase. Here are some ideas. Intertwine lime colored grapevines with burgundy dahlias or mix cattails with sunflowers. For a stunning centerpiece simply combine apples, baby boo pumpkins and colorful leaves.
Soon enough the rain will return and Mother Nature’s composting process will begin. So, delight in sharing the goodness that gardening has given to you. Design arrangements for yourself, your coworkers, the school secretary and the mailman.
