This past week, frost finally put an end to my tender annuals and the long months of pleasure they gave. Every potential bud and flower of Dahlia ‘Voodoo’ and ‘Tiki Torch,’ as well as Zinnias ‘Sprite,’ ‘Cactus’ and Double Cherry Profusion’ were picked the day before the expected frost and put into vases. My house looked like a florist shop, arrangements were everywhere. Shown here are a few of them.
While it is sad to say goodbye to the growing season, I’m ready for what comes next… hibernation, ha!
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
