Autumn is one of nature’s most dramatic seasons. Rather than purchasing plastic decorations probably made in China, why not opt for the real thing: sunflowers, pumpkins, pinecones, dried grasses and such.
Three designers known for their appreciation of the natural world offer tips and twists on fall decorations in my article published in The Denver Post. Their ideas are easy to execute and will lend an elegant and unexpected beauty to your autumn. And several of the ideas will take you into Thanksgiving and even the winter holidays.

Pansies and violas perfect for spring or fall

PANSIES

The wonderful thing about pansies and violas is that they’re perfect plants either for early spring or for autumn. Pansies–many of which are appreciated for their little flower faces–can even weather a winter storm and come out smiling, so they’re ideal plants to perk up autumn containers, borders or beds.
And remember, pansies are edible, too. As long as you’re growing organically, you may add blossoms to salads, deserts or as a garnish.
My article published in The Denver Post has plenty of pansy tips from professional growers.
