Another bright and sunny day here in central Italy, that said there was rain for a lot of the weekend and very heavy rain through the night.
But there is no denying that autumn is in the air, I therefore decided that I would celebrate the season with a vase of seed-heads and fruits.
But first I really couldn’t ignore the Zinnias, if you’d like to see them in the garden I posted about them here.
Yesterday my husband came home from hospital after having a knee replacement operation. With the wonderful physiotherapy that he had in hospital he was raring to go for a walk, despite grey skies and showers. I took the opportunity to pick some Rosa canina hips and stems of Euonymus europaeus heavy with their crimson and orange fruits.
To add a slightly more solid accent I picked three seed-heads of Echinacea from the cut flower beds. I picked but decided against using a stem of Arbutus with flowers and fruits; that will find a home in a different vase.
With my thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting this popular Monday challenge.
Tomorrow is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day (GBFD) here at My Hesperides Garden I do hope you will be able to join me.
