It's that time of year in the garden again, where things are dying down and frost is due any day. Promised work is finished and the garden is ready to be torn out except for the last blooms that you cut for yourself. That is such a special time. It is a reminder, at the end of the season, of the love you have for the work.
You can plan and arrange flowers in a hundred specific color palettes throughout the year but flowers of fall are cut from what is left into what becomes a beautiful, unplanned array. Paired with the translucent, ever-so-colorful branches of leaves these bouquets make some of my favorite displays of the whole year!
My dear friend's Adrienne Gerber and Jani Hershberger, both talented Ohio photographers, came at the end of the season last year to capture the garden from cut to design. See Adrienne's original post here.
Some other end-of-season bouquets from this year.
As always, thank-you for enjoying beauty with me. Happy Fall!
