Wednesday Lagniappe: Fall "Floral" Arrangements
I like to bring in flowers all throughout the growing season, but especially when frost is threatening, as I might not have any more home-grown flowers till spring. But my idea of a "floral arrangement" is a bit....off.
For example, here are two recent, um, "arrangements" :
This is the Nana dwarf pomegranate, Punica granatum
And here is another oddball:
Brown cotton or Gossypium hirsutum
The second photo was taken by my spouse as part of a series of a reference photos for a drawing of the plant, but then....I decided I kind of like how it looks and have kept it around in my living room. Unfortunately, I do not have a photo of a more "finished" arrangement, but think how cool this might look with some ferns, and a few blooms, around the outer edge!
