Botanical Inspiration: Persimmon Fruit

This week's botanical inspiration is a persimmon tree that grows outside our bedroom window.  This time of year, its fruit ripens and its leaves turn golden yellow and bright orange, perfect for  materials for floral arrangements.  Most people would make pudding or pie from this harvest but not I.   Using one of my favorite vases, I created a fall bouquet with our tree's fruit and other autumn garden finds.
