Such a kindly autumn,
so mercifully dealing
With the growths of summer,
I never yet have seen.
William Cullen BryantHere we are in November and the garden is still bursting with colour and there is still plenty of blooms to gather together to fill not just one vase but, as can be seen, several.
Just one of the 'arrangements' made from that trug of goodness. Plonked in the jug are the deep pink Asters, novae-angliae, red, pink and yellow antirrihums and cherry red achillea 'Cassis'.
I'm loving this combination of reds and pinks though I have added a little yellow and gold for contrast.
This pink/yellow antirrhinum is so pretty and the sprig taken from my little green beech tree is a golden delight.
Just as soon as I can, I will be lifting and dividing the asters ... I look forward to seeing more of those lovely cheery flowers spreading around the garden.
Once again I'm joining in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden with this vase this week.
