October 15, 2012 -- salvia, bouvardia, and farewell summer

This started with some lipstick-colored salvia flowers I picked this afternoon.  As I gathered them, I also gathered some wild, white asters I call Farewell Summer. Put them in a wine glass, but they seemed to need a punch, so I added pink bouvardia flowers.

I picked a couple of these bouvardia flowers fresh (from plants in pots outside) but a couple were recycled from Oct. 5 arrangement. I'm amazed at how well they hold up as cut flowers.
