Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
I love the sunny disposition zinnias bring to the garden. These began flowering this past week just as many other blooms succumbed to recent hot and dry weather. They will continue well into October.
Bright and cheerful, long-lasting as cut flowers, zinnias add color and zest to summer vases.
These stems are pinned into a florist’s frog to hold them in place. Several fronds of fern add flair and help balance the design.
