Just a few days before Thanksgiving, a first hard freeze hit our area--very late for Southern Wisconsin. I clipped the last of the garden blooms before it hit and created an arrangement of Zinnias, Marigolds, and Lantanas, with a few spikes of Northern Sea Oats.
For staging, I placed pumpkins and pine cones around the base. (This didn't last long, because the cat tried to chew on the lot.)
The vase was saved one from a previous arrangement, which came with a matching autumnal saucer.
It's fading now, but it sure was nice to have cut flowers from the garden in late November.
Cathy at Rambling in the Garden hosts the meme In a Vase on Monday. Visit her blog for more cut-flower inspiration.
I hope all who celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Blessings as we move through the busy holiday season ahead!
