Early Sunday morning, we had our first frost. Saturday afternoon, I spent four hours in the garden harvesting what I could save of beans, basil and flowers and ended up with five arrangements. I plan on featuring one at a time over the next weeks to prolong the joy of sharing them. I really miss having a garden full of flowers to create with and winter feels lean without them.
I picked every Dahlia bud and blossom in the patch. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to ID a couple as they were gifted to me.

Also included are white and pink/purple Spider Flowers (Cleome hassleriana), pink and white Garden Phlox (P. paniculata) and white and pink Zinnia ‘Cut and Come Again.’
