Autumn cheer, a mix of colorful faux and dried plants. Most of the faux plants here I cut into segments from what was originally one bigger plant, and were end-of-summer clearance. I know tomatoes aren’t exactly autumn harvest, but the colors were appropriate!
The bright green dried artichokes I just picked up when I was getting groceries at Trader Joe’s — I’m in love with them.
Usually, I haven’t had a lot of luck with dried plants outdoors — even the ones that are tough enough to stay whole through rain and snow will fade over a few months. But I’m hoping on a sheltered porch, the dried bits will last okay; we’ll see!
