There is something very reminiscent about cutting flowers for a vase, especially in the fall. Hydrandeas remind me of the bright huge flowers of my grandmother’s garden in Berkeley, CA. They amazed me as a child that so many flowers created one powerful bloom. Then I learned how to dry them by hanging them upside down in the basement so that I could keep them all winter long.  Hope!

Add in this bouquet, Cone Flower. This amazing flower blooms all the way from July to September as long as you deadhead properly.

Come on by the Gallery and see the hydrangea and cone flower. Here are some more ideas from houzz.
