Flower arranging allows you an all natural and super-green way to decorate your home for fall and winter. How about gathering up the remainder of your fall garden flowers, seed heads, and vegetables to build some incredible arrangements for your front patio or bed stand? If you have an organic garden, like I do, then both the flowers and vegetables you have this fall are chemical free and would rest perfectly on a kitchen counter. Fresh flower arrangements really bring the power of nature forward, so now is the time to enjoy all that freshness before extreme winter hits your neighborhood.
