HALLOWEEN ARRANGEMENTS - Using my first reblooming tall bearded iris, fall mums, dahlias, and zinnias

This weeks arrangements use the fall flowers that are still blooming:  dinner plate dahlias, mums, hybrid tea roses, state fair zinnias, delphinium, and, to my surprise--a reblooming tall bearded iris "ECHO OF SPRING," my first-ever, which was a rhizome that I just planted a few months ago. It was a prize for a winning entry in the 2014 AIS photo contest. These flowers, with the exception of the iris, will continue blooming until a hard freeze. The roses are especially bright, fragrant and huge, and the mums will last 4 weeks or more in the vase.
