October flowers

It's getting late in the season for many flowers and I'm doing flower arrangements for the Scottish Country Dance this Saturday in Fairlee.  I've already picked Allium 'Ozawa', common witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana), and beech leaves which should work nicely for the table arrangements.  I guess I'll use European spindle tree berries (if they are still good), leaves- probably oak or beech and perhaps some Miscanthus.  Lately, I've  been using mostly leaves with the occasional aster and brown-eyed susans (Rudbeckia triloba) and also berries of both bittersweet and especially European spindle tree (Euonymus europaeus)..  I've also used burning bush (Euonymus alatus).
