Fall is the most beautiful time of the year in my part of the world. Over the last two weeks, the trees have burst into shades of orange, yellow and reds.
I’m not above sneaking around to beg a few clippings off the most spectacular. If anyone knows how to prolong or preserve the color of branches like those in the lead shot, please let me know.
Luckily I have a neighbor with several magnolia trees, and she has given me carte blanche to snip at will.
A trip to the Starkville Public Library’s First Monday book sale netted me some old classics for a touch of color. All it takes is a vintage pail and some leaves from Mother Nature to make this fall-worthy centerpiece. Chunk magnolia leaves into a bucket. The arrangement works best if you place tall leaves in the back and shorter leaves in the front.
Happy Fall ya’ll.
