All it takes is a vase, a front yard, and a lot of creativity

Story, photo, and bouquet by Patricia Hale

I had company coming for dinner on Sunday and wanted to dress up the table with some fall color. So I headed out to the yard to see what I could find.
There is always something available to make a bouquet with. Even if you don’t have many flowers.

This bouquet includes the last of my dahlias, some feverfew, a few sprigs of cotoneaster, a little bit of Douglas fir and leaves -- lots and lots of leaves. Maple, Rhododendron and even some fuchsia leaves.

Just grab a big vase, fill with water and overstuff it with interesting shapes and colors.

Happy Fall and Thanksgiving all!

What was dinner? It must have been delicious if you can whip up a bouquet like this! You are a gift to the neighborhood.
