An Arrangement for an upcoming Ikebana Exhibition

Driving on the roadside, there are many trees like Crab Apple, Crepe Myrtle and Cherry which have a lot of fruits or berries already. You can sense a bit of Autumn in the air now. Using seasonal materials as much as possible, with what you can get, is always one of Ikebana's main concepts.
I tried to use berries and Hydrangea for their contrasting colors, but the Hydrangea wilted within two days. So I will have to choose other flowers that can last longer for an upcoming exhibition.
