DSC_0832I have loved flowers since I can remember. I can still remember watering my Nana's flowers circa 1980 with my super cool white sunglasses and my ducky watering can. There is photographic evidence of this somewhere and when I find it, I promise to share it.  Anyway, the point is WOW do I love flowers. I love them so much that I worked at a flower shop part time for 2 years just to be around them. During this time I was fortunate to learn a lot about flowers and floral arranging. On the weekend, my Nana asked me to make an arrangement for her church. She wanted something somewhat showy and colorful in keeping with an autumn theme. She had her own vase, so off I went gathering $40 (okay it turned out to be closer to $50) worth of flowers. It actually got me quite far. Here's what I came up with:

If you feel like sharing your arrangements, I would love to see them!
