Today's offering was hastily assembled as it was a busier weekend than usual.
With temperatures below freezing predicted, the persimmons needed to be picked from the tree. The colors of the heucheras didn't read well in these pictures but they echoed the orange color of the persimmons.
Maple-leaf roses from a few weeks ago were just sitting around waiting to be spray painted.
I went to the store to get spray paint, found this poinsettia, and forgot the paint. Oops.
Yes, the poinsettia should have been in the middle flanked by the heucheras but the handle on the basket would require squishing around the plant too much and it might get wrecked. Maybe a different receptacle will be found later.
So there you have it, my lopsided and strangely-colored (google photos changed their editing tools again and took away several options.)
I couldn't stand it and wanted to make it work so tried something different. Still not doing it for me.
Sometimes less is more or at least less frustrating.
