October 25, 2012 -- rich colors

I did two large arrangements for a party yesterday, and these were some of the leftovers--fall garden flowers in very rich colors. The deep magenta flower is coxcomb, which started as one large comb (like the ones I used in yesterday's party arrangements) but such a comb was too big for these little vases, so I tore it into several smaller segments. Other things included: pale peach mums, a couple of snapdragons, coral and pink zinnias, blue ageratum, some bouganvillia foliage leftover from other windowsill arrangements.

The little reddish balls sitting at the bottoms of the vases are immature castor bean seed structures.
