In honor of our first frost, I did some last minute flower cutting from the garden before they get zapped. Which is very sad.
But to help me not come to grips with the fact that winter is coming very quickly, I spread some vases of prettiness around the house to help me pretend it is still summer. Or at least early fall. Happy thoughts.
This is not usually something I would blog about, because really flowers in a vase is not riveting.
Being the non-flower designer I am, I usually cut some flowers and stick them in vase and call it good. But since all my plants even the non-flowering ones are on borrowed time right now, I added them to the mix.
And I could not believe what a variety of leaves did for my scrawny flowers. Hence why it gets a blog post.
They actually looked like I put some thought into it….
So now I can think summery thoughts while I at the computer…
Or washing dishes…..
How are you hanging onto summer? Or are you telling winter to bring it on?
