Years ago I bought this covered veggie dish and a platter in the Fruit Basket pattern by the English china manufacturer, Mason's. For a lark I went online last fall to see if one of those companies that carries old china patterns might have a piece. Indeed they had a few but they were asking more than I wanted to pay. Imagine my delight when I found this little covered jar only days later at a local antique shop at a much better price.
I decided it would make a great vase and not take up much room on the Thanksgiving table. At the rate we're going, I may be able to almost repeat this bouquet when Thanksgiving arrives.
The main item is an annual Hibiscus which has been living by the front door and still looks great. There are more than a few spikes of Agastache with color left on them, but that's the last bright Baneberry seedpod. Most of the Heucheras are still going strong though I doubt I will get another fat flower stalk like this one from a plant in a protected location. It was fun to think about the next big holiday coming up and what might be available to create a bouquet for the big feast.
