I did some bouquets for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day yesterday and thought I try to do some arrangements with foliage only for Foliage Follow Up. Inspired by the gorgeous silver leaf backs of my Astelia chathamica, I started making a flat composition on the bench. I had planned it to be much larger and more intricate but I started getting irritated when I'd bump one leaf and all the others would get out of whack. Andy Goldsworthy I am not.
I used Astelia chathamica, Persimon 'Fuyu' in fall color, and Lophomyrtus x ralphii 'Kathryn'. Click on the photo and it'll take you to Flickr where you can see what is what.
Thank you to Pam for hosting Foliage Follow Up! Please join everyone and show us what great foliage you've got in your garden right now! Wishing everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
