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.
