I'm not a fan of fall. I'm not crazy about fall colors, the mess of dropping leaves, cool weather, etc., and I'm certainly not happy that fall means the end to my backyard sanctuary. With the unseasonal rain and mild temperatures we've experienced during the past month, my grass, hydrangeas, ferns, and hedges are at the their peak of perfection...my urns runneth over.
At this point in the season, I don't mind taking cuttings from my hydrangeas, wisteria, nandina berries, and other plantings in order to make fall (I prefer to call them 'late summer') arrangements. The way I look at it, if the change of seasons is going to get them, I'll get them first.
This arrangement was my inspiration for grabbing my pruning shears and to start cutting.
I'm enjoying a beautiful vase of (one of my favorites) lime hydrangeas. They make me smile.
