Throughout the cold months, while I await Spring’s arrival, I remember past growing seasons via vases of dried plants collected during the summer and on long autumn walks.
The brown tones of this hand-thrown pottery vase (another great, free-table find), echo the colors of the arrangement.
I love the rusty backsides of Southern Magnolia leaves (M. grandiflora), the bronze tones of Goldenrod (Solidago sp.) galls, and the golden interiors of Milkweed pods (Asclepias syriaca).
Dried Hypericum berries (H. androsaemum) cluster low and seeded grasses (Calamagrostis and Dactylis) arch high. A few twisted branches of European Filbert (Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’) photobomb from a vase offscreen to the left.
