Late Bloomers

Hi all, how was your weekend? Did you celebrate the first days of Fall? I picked a bit of the season up at the flower stand down the street and brought it home with me.


I love the late blooms of Autumn. Chrysanthemums, sunflowers, dahlias, antiqued hydrangeas, faded garden roses.

They shift the eye from the vivid, bright-hot color palette of summer, and prepare us for the glorious sunset that is Fall fading to gray Winter days.

A few late blooms in a blue and white vase, seems to be the perfect way to revel in the season.

How are you bringing fall home?

  2. I'm having a dahlia moment right now! Just love their rich red color.

    I started changing out my kitchen cabinets - pink is going and Halloween is starting to appear. By the weekend, I should be full blown fall inside and out!

    I'm ready for a change!

  3. I have some beautiful hydrangeas in the kitchen, they have that lovely faded green blue patina. I also have some yummy looking fig branches from my friends garden. Love them!
