These flowers were white in the spring and now have turned this gorgeous rusty pink color. They are one of my favorite flowers we have in our yard called Autumn Sedum, how perfect is that name? The rain forced them flat on the ground, I thought I better bring them in to enjoy a little longer. They last forever after you clip them and bring them inside. I also added clippings from my boxwood shrubs.
I wanted to keep them alive longer than a day. I filled a Ziploc bag with water and wrapped an elastic around it to keep it secure. Be careful when putting them in the bag, you don’t want to puncture the bag (I wouldn’t know from experience or anything).
The sunflowers in this basket are fake… gasp!
They needed some life, I added some fresh clippings and put them in a water bag also. I shared some links on where to find these hanging baskets.
Both of my doors are Benjamin Moore, Hale Navy.
I posted this picture on my Fall Home Tour and received a lot of questions.
I actually made it myself, just using clippings from my yard and wrapping it with twine in a wreath shape.
Now this is a great solution if you are having a party, or people over or need a wreath pronto! BUT…it looked like crap the next day, not good. It dried all ugly.
So I gave you some links below to some of my favorite wreaths! I will be purchasing one too, so tell me your favorite.
