Summer’s Bounty

While visiting friends in Saratoga Springs recently, I was given an assignment to make a flower arrangement from what I could find. I had total access to forage from a large yard. Delightfully, I found things I don’t even know the names of, and rediscovered my love of foliage. There were ferns and mint, soloman’s seal and wild rose greens. And I loved the waning yellows of peony foliage. There were ripe raspberries and crab apple. Deep claret-red amaranthus married the berried reds and seemed to call to the late summer rusts to follow. For now, I feel gratitude for summer’s abundance.IMG_8332IMG_8335IMG_8388IMG_8338IMG_8341IMG_8373IMG_8376IMG_8349 2IMG_8399 2IMG_8380Flower arrangement and photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.
