Bouquet in 90 Seconds

Sage and Eucalyptus Bouquet
 I wanted to make an arrangement to put in the house on a small side table.  I am amazed that this late in November I have a lot of things that still look pretty good in the garden.  For this arrangement, I decided to just use foliage:  purple sage and eucalyptus.  I snipped a few stems of each and put them in a silver pitcher.

Sage is hardy to zone 5 and I keep it in my garden for two reasons:  it's great to use for cooking and its foliage complements so many other types of plants.  This one has a purple hue and its leaves are textured.

I like the fragrance and leaf structure of eucalyptus.  Unfortunately, it is not hardy in my zone so I replant it every year.

A nice little arrangement done in only 90 seconds.  No flowers required.

Karen: Thanks for writing. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my eucalyptus potted. I don't know how I overlooked that. I'll make a point taking a few pictures next year since I plant it every season. --Miriam
