Bloom 2019 – The Autumn One

Couldn’t resist sharing this very autumn looking arrangement I made the other day. Think I’ll wait to share the rest of the summer ones until after Christmas when we’ll all need a bit of cheering up!

I love looking at all the autumn flower arrangements on Instagram. I tried to make an autumn wreath a few years back and although it didn’t turn out very well I liked using the brown ‘dead’ stuff to give a different effect.

Here we have a few greens – garrya eliptica with those amazing tassels, cotinus (not green but still alive) and jasmine. I added crocosmia seed heads, beech leaves, spirea flower heads and some of those seed pods that I dried, scabious stelata.

Really glad I tried something different and used what was available from my garden. Next up a wreath! Love, love Christmas arranging.
