There's been a distinct chill at night over the past week and it also rained for a few days here and there the sun came out but you can still feel the chill in the air. It got me thinking about the fall season. One of my favourite seasons except for the fact that it is far too short!
On a whim I decided to go to another part of town today (Saturday). I had to pick up a few specific items plus I made time to browse. I decided to buy these colourful, artificial flowers and stems and put together this display. I also added some fairy lights amongst the blossoms to give off a hygge-ly glow at night. I think I need another 3 or 4 stems to give it a bit more fullness.
I don't normally enjoy artificial flowers but they are certainly pretty and these days they can look so real. The one thing I do love about artificial flowers is they don't die. I love flowers and I love colourful flowers so these ones will last me for awhile without needing to worry about finding fresh ones that aren't too dear. In years gone by it was very easy to stop in every other store and buy a bouquet of fresh flowers. One often picked up a bunch to enjoy at home or to take to the host of a dinner party. It has become harder to do as most of those small stores have disappeared and the cost of a bouquet is now quite high considering the blossoms generally don't last more than a few days.
Anyway I'm pleased with these blossoms and I will keep my eye out for a few more stems. I'm especially happy about the small battery powered lights. Having the ambience on a dark night is always so enjoyable.
This little poem captures my feelings about fall. While summer isn't quite over and we will likely get warmer temperatures again soon, for now it feels like a new season has begun. How is it where you live?
Thanks for stopping by!
