Autumn Colors

When I worked at the flower shop a long time ago the fall colors were orange and yellow or for a change it was yellow and orange. We ordered in fall leaves which had been preserved and dyed these colors and that's what went into all the fall arrangements.

Now we're so blessed to have the rich jewel box colors for autumn. Deep purples, garnet, persimmon, bright sunflower yellows and tobacco browns, dark pinks, even the greens. I love it. I only wish we would have been into these colors when I was at the flower shop, just think of the lush designs I could make. And I'd send one to each one of you. Diane

I love all of the Jewel colors too, Diane. Fall colors are much prettier now than they used to be.

Thanks Diane for this nice post.

Fall colors are so wonderful. You have caught them in your photo beautifully. I love just going for a drive or a walk and seeing the bright colors and the leaves falling.
Have a wonderful day Diane.
