Finally, a few days out of the office after months of insanely busy work. Since the temperature is supposed to dip below freezing tonight, I decided to scrounge around the yard and see if I could join in on the Flowers In The House party over at SmallButCharming. There are lots of lovely flowers there; go take a look!
My lavender is having a last hurrah, so I rounded up some sage, thyme, Thai basil, dusty miller, a few tiny spirea blooms and one last lovely aster and squeezed it all into a blue mason jar on the windowsill.
Felix stopped by for a sniff. It is a very fragrant bouquet!
I can’t resist the gorgeous leaves that drop like gems onto my walkway from the flame maple we planted a few years back. Here they are on the mantle along with some snips of coleus, sweet potato vine, and fading sedum. The long-stemmed dish was my maternal grandmother’s; I love the golden glass with the autumn leaves.

Just know the fragrance of the herbs and flowers is divine… And nothing better than a Mason jar vase! The leaves are just lovely!
Thanks, Susan! I do love the leaves, even though I know they will fade almost as soon as I bring them in.
Both are perfect, containers, flowers and pictures.
This was a treat to come home to.
Thanks for joining the party!
Thanks,Jane! I always seem to tag on to tail end of the party but love seeing other people’s offerings, and it’s so therapeutic to gather and arrange bouquets. Plus my kitties are highly entertained by the greenery!
Herbs in a mason jar … a perfect combo. Very sweet.
Thanks, Christa! I’ve been admiring your autumn farm photos this morning; what a lovely spot you call home!
