A Lavender leaf filled circular container with Rose, Chrysanthemum buds, Cotoneaster …

The Lord is near; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything make your requests known to God in prayer… and then the peace of God, which is beyond all understanding will guard your hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4 : 5-7

Looking down into this small arrangement you can see the following: lemon Rose and buds , Lavender leaves and flowers, a stalk of Chrysanthemum buds, Sedum Autumn Joy and Heuchera Berry Smoothie flowers.
This Chrysanthemum which will be russet in colour comes up every year and has flowers from late October to early December. It is covered in many buds so I hope to be enjoying their colour in November.
The small container is a charity shop find from many years ago. It has a well fitting lid.
Cotoneaster Francheti is native to southwestern China, in the provinces of Guizhou, Sichuan, Tibet and Yunnan. It is an evergreen or semi- evergreen shrub with small, waxy, green leaves, creamy flowers in late spring followed by red berries in autumn. It grows from 20cm to 40cm a year and is used for hedging growing to 3m high.
Birds eat and spread the seeds so they grow in various places in my garden but I keep the plant low to the ground.
This small arrangement,on a world map box , will be my last arrangement from our garden for the next little while, as my blog will come from Bugzy with Roy and Bess in France. We have no definite route but will try to find some sunshine!

Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and present you faultless before His Father and the assembled universe with great joy, to such a wise God and Savior belong glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever! Amen.

Jude 10:24
