Bloom 3.0 – the purples have it

I was pottering around in the garden last Saturday and could not resist picking the yellow berried foliage. On a side note I did not know the name of this shrub as it was here in the garden when we moved in but I just checked and it is Cotoneaster ‘Rothschildianus’.

I thought that I must be able to find enough material to make an arrangement and I just about did but had to think outside of my normal go to’s.

The previously well picked Euphorbia plants have sprouted again and gave me lovely fresh lime green foliage.

And my favourite aster had a few flowers left that looked good so I cut those and I liked that the yellow centres echoed the yellow berries. The salvia is still going strong and also the verbena bonariensis had a few flower stems left too so they were picked as thier colours went so well with the asters.

I decided that the sunflowers were not going to grow any more so I picked a few buds. They may not be blooming but are dramatic and mirror the spiky-ness of the asters.

Can I eek this flower arranging out into November I wonder?

    Beautiful. Another masterpiece of floral arrangements.

    You do have a lovely drive to work. I can walk to work & on some of this week’s sunnier moments, it has been fun to kick through all the crunchy leaves on the ground.
