Flower Arranging in November
The pickings are getting very slim these days although there have been Calendula and Johnny-jump-ups still blooming in my garden as of Monday. Today they may be done- I didn't check this morning and it got quite cold last night. My large church altar arrangement still looked OK with winter berry, beech foliage (now tan and dead but still pretty) and grasses- maybe I'll leave it and rejuvenate it slightly Sunday morning. Instead of my large silver-plate rose bowl which I have been using for several years, I tried the large white ironstone tureen from my grandfather's farm which I don't have to worry about (it being stolen, that is). I wish those robins had left my winterberry alone this year but they ate most of the berries.
