Each autumn I like to take time to appreciate the last of the garden flowers. We've had several nights of frost, but they've not been quite cold enough to kill off the blossoms. But, I expect it will happen soon. My practice is to enjoy one last walk around the yard, admiring the flowers and picking some to arrange in the house so they can be enjoyed close-up.
My bouquet is eclectic this year. Among roses in pink, yellow, and lavender are dark burgundy snap-dragons, lavender, and black-eyed Susan. It doesn't matter if the colors clash. There's something about the colors of nature that seem to compliment one another uniquely. My wild and wonderful bouquet now graces the coffee table. It brings such pleasure, and even more, knowing that it is the last of the season.
