    The Cornus kousa fruits look like appetizers! Dahlias are perfect and gorgeous. All those little Boo Pumpkins are from your compost?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      The kousa fruit are edible, though I’ve not tried them. I love the symmetry of dahlias, a perfect example the Fibonacci sequence. And yes, those are my compost freebies!

  6. The corpus makes a perfect foil

    Those corus seed heads remind me of dried button bush blooms. They would make wonderful ornaments! Rich, rich color. Another stunning arrangement Eliza!

  13. Lovely! Particularly love the cornus kousa fruit detail on glass.

    Simply lovely. Love your new header too.

  17. Kris P says:

    Nice echo with the Cornus fruit! The little white pumpkins in your header are are a nice touch too. FYI, a friend of mine was looking at white pumpkins only somewhat bigger than yours at a garden center we visited recently – they were $20 each. (She did NOT buy any.)

  18. Oh so elegant! One of my favorites.

    So, so beautiful. I’m amazed how you always have something beautiful in your garden, all year round. I understrand that your lifelong passion, and knowledge collected throughout the years are responsible for this, and that is very special.

  20. Beautiful Eliza and wonderful that your garden is still blooming!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise. It has been much warmer than average. Some saying there might be a frost this weekend. If so, that’ll end the dahlias and zinnias. 😦

    I put cornus fruits in a vase one year and they dried beautifully…make fun tie-ons for packages. I love the way you have used them here.

  22. Between your beautiful flowers and our 80 degree weather, it almost feels like summer again. Lovely arrangement and photo!🙂

  23. Jewels says:

    Love the contrast of the red and white. Beautiful Eliza!

    Profound words from ELIZA WATERS:

    “My first love? Nature. I couldn’t live without my daily immersion, walking in the woods, visiting our waterfall or sitting by the river watching the birds going about their business. It is where I connect to the “peace which passes all understanding.”
