This week’s inspiration in Kim Klassen’s Be Still52 class was to go out into our neighborhood and gather natural materials that represents the season we are in and then lay them out on a background to photograph. I was thrilled with this assignment as I had already planned to do something like that this week just in my own garden, so that is exactly what I did. After gathering all the different plant materials that represent the Fall season we are in here in Seattle, I thought rather than lay them out on a table or backdrop, why not lay them out on the welcome stone I made for the entry to the container garden!
So, I took my time laying out all the individual pieces
little berries from an unidentifiable tree near the container garden entrance
leaves from my Sumac shrub in the container garden
buds from the golden hops vine
leaves from the Japanese Maple in the front yard
dried Hydranga blossoms from the shub in the front yard
little buds from the Silver Vein Creeper vine that wraps around the front deck
and more leaves from our Japanese Maple. To all of that I added a couple of plumes from Fountain grass that grows on the South side of the house and a couple of ivy sprigs that are spilling out of pots all over the place.
And here you have it. A collection of Fall finds in my garden this week. This was so much fun that I’m thinking I will do this on my little welcome stone for each of the seasons!
What did you find this week in your corner of the world?
Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m linking up with both my Be Still52 class and of course Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds.
