I love your eye. If it wasn't snowing, I might go out myself and see what I could find. I was just looking wistfully at the last of the zinnias and dahlias I brought in.

What a wonderful series of images to illustrate the lasting beauty of foliage. I'm in good company with my tendency to bring in new elements for a vase when something fades. There are two large fatshedera leaves in a vase on our dining table that have been there for months, framing whatever flower—or currently a trio of sarracenia pitchers—comes and goes. Oh and I have never seen hosta seed heads!

DANGER — I was helping a friend do bouquets for a celebration and we went to each other's gardens to clip things and mix in our arrangements. She had let her Hostas make seedheads and I loved them. Sometimes they've formed and gone a golden color when I clipped them. But usually we get frost before that happens.

KRISTIN — Snowed here as well. Just a dusting but enough to be a shock. Haven't gone out to see what it looks like in person.

You do foliage beautifully, Linda. As I tear apart my cutting garden to ready it for cool season plants, I expect I need to learn to do more with my own foliage in future weeks.


Such a pleasing mix of textures and muted colors. I think people forget that arrangements don’t have to be big, colorful or exotic to be interesting. These fit the season without the obligatory orange!

Those dark seed heads are dramatic. It won't be long and there won't be much to play with.


This is really fabulous--the best arrangement I've seen for the meme this week. So creative. I have lost my desire to be out in the garden the past few days. The cold snap really got me down. I'll be out there during the next few days, though, as it warms up just a bit. I'm not ready for winter at all this year. :(

BETH — I am so not ready for this change in the weather. Still quite a lot of winter prep to do in the garden even with leaving more plants up than I used to do.
