Last week while the ground was still bare I stole into the yard and picked the remaining flower heads. None of them alive anymore but still just as pretty.
Hydrangea blooms that were once white are now dried to perfection by the cool temperatures and fall winds.
The flowers of sedum have dried and slowly opened to reveal their seeds.

This bouquet will quite possibly last me months, bringing a dash of autumn into the house, reminding me of all the wonders that will come again next spring. quite possibly one of my favourite bouquets thus far.
