Autumn Garden Bouquet…..
Autumn in all its vibrant glory…..
One thing you can say for Mother Nature is she nows how to start a season of in a riot of colour! During a dry moment today I wander into my garden with secateurs in hand to create a small garden bouquet, but I didn’t want the usual Autumn tones of just reds and orange, and I wasn’t disappointed by what I found.
Hydrangea of the brightest blue, Sedum Matrona in the softest pink, red rose hips, glossy green Pieris Forest Flame, golden crab apples that the birds haven’t yet devoured and even a dappled Hellebore in flower.
I have to admit I usual arrange flowers of subtle pastel tones but I love the contrast of the yellow golden crab apples against the blue Hydrangea and the ruby jewels of the rose hips.
I added a double taffeta bow in copper and emerald from my collection of Jane Means ribbons to give it an extra zing.
So have a look around your own garden, you’ll be surprised by whats still in flower out there and credit where its due, Mother Nature is fabulous at colour combining!
