    Wonderful photo! Would like to know what all of the plants are. I know the cone flower but what are the rest?

    Oooo, Michelle, love those homemade lanterns.... can you tell us how you made them?

    Thanks, PerenniallyCrazy! They're just Mason jars filled partway with clear florist gems and a tea light candle, and hung from the pergola with garden twine. Simple!
