Flower arrangements for hospice

One of the most rewarding things that my garden group does each year is creating flower arrangements for a local hospice care place.  We all bring flowers and foliage, then create arrangements in donated containers.  We did 38 yesterday — wonderful.

This was one of mine.  I enjoyed the subtle contrast of the senescing thistles and Penstemon, contrasted with the fennel umbels.

We created lots of vibrant flower combinations, too.

 Definitely a nice thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.
