In A Vase On Monday – Autumn’s Arrival

Eliza Waters

Autumn is officially here in the northern hemisphere, so I’ve chosen to celebrate the season for this week’s IAVOM. Featuring another of my Artesa pocket vases, this one sports two looks, cobalt and turquoise, along with a small sugar pumpkin prop (which may or may not be eaten in a few weeks).

Golden cactus Zinnias, rust-colored cushion Chrysanthemums, cut from a plant I picked up recently, and arcs of Cigar Plant (Cuphea ignea) add pizazz in autumnal colors.

White Panicled Aster (Symphyotrichum lanceolatum) mutes the bright colors and cobalt-blue Salvia (S. guarantica) offers contrast while matching the vase.

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
