Taking time to really appreciate what your garden's produced is probably the very best aspect of flower - and foliage - arranging. The fact that you're able to use what you've cut to create new arrangements for weeks to come is a major bonus.

My goodness. That is one big bunch of foliage. I love the variegated toad lily foliage. I think it would look great with the hardy begonia foliage. Fun vases this week.


That marsh spurge is such a great ingredient for arrangements. An old Plant Delights listing says it blooms in early summer. Did those bracts last all season, or did your wet year encourage it to bloom later/longer? Does it self-seed? <--(another question prompted by the PD info)


That's fabulous, Linda! You are very talented with foliage combinations. They are truly beautiful.

Perfection! I've been doing similar, as we flirt with a killing frost (so far not). What is the big "fanned" out leave front and center in the first photo. I should know it (I think), but can't place it.

That fan-like foliage is a Thanksgiving blooming Hellebore. It has big buds under the fallen tree leaves though they are probably going to freeze with this change in the weather. It is an unnamed H. niger from the late Seneca Hill Perennials.

I think those are later flowers on the spurge. I planted it last fall and so it has not really had time reseed. Now I will need to watch it since you mentioned it. It is a fairly big and rangy plant. Its roots are getting a bit of pond water and it is not getting as much sun as it might like. The flowers did not last as long as cut blooms as I had hoped.
