October 20, 2011--circus colors

This is just a riot of color. And it would be even more riotous if I had more tithonia (the bright orange flower in the vase second from the left) here in Ashland.  (Those I do have migrated to Ashland in an arrangement I'd brought home from Buckingham.)  The blues and oranges and reds remind me of the circus, as do the stripes in the gourd. There are winterberries, blue ageratum, purple salvia, marigolds, and zinnias in these little containers, too. One of the zinnias sort of sums up the feel of the whole array--it's a striped  or "broken" zinna with blotches of red splashing the yellow petals.
