In A Vase On Monday

My garden blogging friend Peter, The Outlaw Gardener, participates in a meme called "In a Vase on Monday". He always comes up with the most wonderful arrangements, staged beautifully with props, all from his garden and collections. 

I always have some kind of arrangement on my kitchen table.  Since most of the flowers are now gone from my garden, I am now looking for foliage and berries, anything to add a little color.
 Here's what I have on my table this Monday.
Some golden fever few blooms, spikes of lightly lavender purple plectranthus,  golden euonymus, orange cotoneaster berries, and a branch of bright purple beauty berry. 
All contained in my go-to green and yellow jug, found in a little antique shop, and my newest glass pumpkin, from the Glass Eye sidewalk sale.  
And of course the green glass salt and pepper shakers. It is the kitchen table where we eat all of our meals, after all. 


  1. Thanks for the link love. Your arrangement is a perfect Halloween treat and not scary at all!

  2. That is so pretty and so fallish. The glass pumpkin is really pretty.

  3. I so admire people who use their own flowers and foliage to make such wonderful fresh arrangements! All I have right now is one huge monstera leaf in a big vase.

  4. Such a beautiful arrangement. Even more stunning than a midsummer display! Thanks for sharing it. :-)

  5. You're doing very well with the limited selection of flowers you have to work with.

  6. I love your arrangement; the cotoneaster berries really add something to the whole.

  7. An exceptional arrangement even if it has few flowers.

  8. Wow, you did an amazing job. I'd pay big money for that. Well done.
