In A Vase On Monday – Autumn Poppies

Eliza Waters

Dried poppy seed pods make a simple arrangement along with a mini-pumpkin brushed in gold as a prop. Thursday is Thanksgiving Day here in the US, with pumpkin pie an essential part of the feast. Best wishes and gratitude to all who will be celebrating.

The vase, actually half a vase, was a thrift store find. Dating from post-war Japan, I was charmed by its delicate hand-painted chrysanthemums with gilt edging and the unusual design that allows it to stand on its own or be hung on a wall.

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.
