“Fall” has arrived for sure even though it feels more like winter, and the garden is definitely gone except for a few summer blooms that are hanging on, even with the cold temperatures, the two frosts we have had, and even the light snow (yes, snow already) last Sunday. We were supposed to have some flurries and by Sunday noon, it was obvious that this was more than flurries.
So truth be told, I am trying to hold on to those days of summer days too? Surround yourself with those things and memories that bring it back to you. Today’s vase does just that. This is probably the last of the summer/fall blooming vases, and because of that I cherish it. Reminds me of the height of summer with the little wildflowers popping everywhere, of picking flowers to carry with me. These colors deserve something simple to let the colors shine, and milk glass does just that. A little darling vase + brightly hued colors = happiness in a vase.
For this vase I gathered a small bunch containing cornflower (cyanus segerum) with that blue purple, Chinese asters, small zinnias, and coreopsis). The sharp colors and shapes work fantastic together.
Are there any flowers still left in your garden? Are you missing summer yet? :)
