I love having live plants and flowers in my home, and what a bonus to have them without a lot of fuss and expense in the process. Beautiful special occasion flowers are wonderful, but sometimes it’s nice to bring home something free from your walk outdoors. I love nature’s jewels in the form of Chinaberry trees, sunflowers, and trumpet vine. Here are a few of my late summer and early fall finds below, all found within a few miles of my front door. I wish I had time to collect and photograph all of the beauty I find in the everyday. The important bit is to enjoy it while it’s here and use what you have at home to hold nature’s bounty. What have you brought in from the outdoors this season, friends?
I found these windblown flowers on the ground and gathered them in an antique bowl. To keep them fresh I added a little vodka. I posted my flower fresh tips here.
