Today is a most glorious Autumn day. For those who are interested in such things, it also happens to be Halloween. With this in mind I have put together a quick arrangement to share.
I would like to be able to tell you that I grew the squashes but that would be a fat fib. They came from Aldi. The dahlias seen in many vases now is Arabian Night and I have grown these.
I am not the biggest fan of Halloween or bonfire night only because the loud fireworks frighten the mutt. I was amused by a story told by my friend this morning who had an appointment with the dentist. When she arrived all the staff were dressed up, complete with full ghoulish makeup. When she saw her actual dentist she felt she should share her view with him: going to the dentist is scary enough without the staff dressing up!
So no costumes here just some Autumnal squashes, dark dark dahlias and a salt glaze tankard which was a gift from Sam for my birthday. Thanks Sam, just right for this arrangement.
