Fall Flower Arranging

While I try to enjoy the last few days of a warm lingering summer, I know that Fall is coming. It is  time to embrace the wildness. The colors, textures, seed pods and the lessening. There is less to pick from, but your eyes are attune to beauty, so you can see it in the roadside weeds and use them too. The key to fall is embracing fall foliage and all of it's color options.

Favorite Fall Flowers (Pre frost)
Zinnia, rudibeckia, coreopsis, golden rod, hydrangea, celosia, chrysanthemum, seedum, lisanthus

Favorite Fall Flowers (After some Frost)
Asters, Ornamental Cabbage, Sunflowers, Cosmo, Snapdragon, Bachelor Buttons, grasses, helenium, parsley, weigela

The Fall Color palette- warm yellow, orange and red

A weird and wacky arrangement made for a table. Black Lace Elderberry's dramatic foliage makes this pink and green combination pop.

I like this arrangement, but it is not perfect. The vase as a skinny section, and with the thick stems of dahlias, it doesn't leave much room for anything else. You live, learn and arrange.
Enjoy Autumn,
