Today, the sun came out and lit the autumn foliage on fire. I went outside with my camera to capture the moment and I noticed that the chocolate cosmos were still blooming. So, I grabbed my snips and picked some blooms. I decided to use my three favorite bottles that I picked up at a garage sale a decade ago. I know. I really like these bottles.
I also picked a japanese anemone seed head and a stem of purple beautyberry. And I laid three fiery Kousa dogwood leaves in front of them. Then I snapped a few shots.
An old Listerine bottle adds character to this bouquet.
I caught The Assistant playing innocent after sniffing the chocolaty scent of the chocolate cosmos.
It was a beautiful day in the garden with The Assistant!
