Today we decided to shake things up a bit by making a cut flower garden, fall style. Here's what we did:
We began with a baking pan half filled with water (any clear glass container would work as long as it's not very deep and has a lot of surface area). We collected materials such as rocks, mum and rose flowers, oak leaves, purple cabbage leaves and acorns. We later added colored glass gems to the bottom of the glass pan (sorry- no pictures).
We ventured into my flower garden to choose which flowers would make the perfect specimens. Since we have a large variety of mums those were the favorite, but we also had a few rose and dianthus left. We picked up the oak leaves as we were heading back to our driveway workspace and spied the beautiful purple cabbage leaves in the vegetable garden there as well. Acorns and acorn caps were added later, and colored gems after that.
