What time of year is it?
It's that time of year where the heat of summer is beginning to give way to crisper night air and forest green leaves are beginning ever so slightly to change to shades of light oranges and yellows. Summer flowers are still blooming and filling our coolers, and fall flowers are starting to arrive on the scene. This is my favorite time of year to be a floral designer! There are colors, shapes and textures abound! It is the one time of year where my foraging skills can be truly put to work and rewarded. I love to mix fresh, vibrant flowers with soft dried ones to add interest and celebrate the change in season.
Some of my favorite things to forage and add to bouquets
I think I will take you all on a foraging trip later in the Autumn! There is a true art to the foraging of natures gifts. I would love to share them with you! Did you know some people actually grow whole gardens for dried fall cuts? That would be amazing!
Here are some of my favorite fresh cuts from this time of year! You will find most of these available in our shop throughout the week. Please do ask for them!
So there you have it! Just a few of our favorite late summer/fall flowers. It is a wonderful time of year to explore and create. Do you love to forage and make beautiful mixed arrangements? We would love to see them!
Until next time, forage on!
