Not too long ago, I was baffled by a bedazzling bunch of berries in a local florist’s million dollar bouquet. I searched online, in my reference books(yes, I still use books!), even inquired at the floral distributor. Surrendering, I concluded the bazillion dollar berries must be pricey imports. Well, guess what!? I found the berries! While on a garden consultation last week, I looked up and #!!$ there they were- bunches of grape- like clusters dripping magically! I found the secret, oh, Exorbitant One…
I returned home tickled that I found the mystery bazillion dollar berries. Later, while strolling with Gizmo, I found the neighborhood Smilax source brimming with beautiful blue/green berries, and nandinas full of bright green getting-ready-to turn- red berries too!
So, here’s the point. Look around, see things you wouldn’t normally use on your kitchen or dining room table. It’s intensely refreshing to place something unique in your fall table arrangements. People will think YOU spent a bazillion-I won’t tell.
Here are a few pics of what I stumbled upon with my eyes wide open this week! See you, ML
