A Week of Flowers – Day One

Cathy at Words and Herbs has presented a challenge to cheer us all up:

“From Sunday the 22nd through to Saturday the 28th let’s share a photo a day (or more than one if you like) of our flowers and gardens and brighten up this dreary time.”

    A wonderful cheering picture of flowers on this dull, overcast day!

  3. Cathy says:

    Wonderful! Our garden is covered in thick frost this morning and all this colour seems like a dream! 😃

      Thank you, Cathy. We are frosty (27F) this morning, too, all browns and grays. I think your idea of posting summer flowers is a good one, definitely cheering!

    As Cathy says – frost here too! Your vase is so vibrant!

    Well that is such a surprise of lovely colors! It’s 43° here, but soooooo many leaves on the ground.

    Lovely! I spent part of yesterday pulling all of the annuals that finally died in the hard freeze we recently had. Always a little sad, but the seasons turn so quickly that it will feel like no time at all before I’m out there planting again.

  8. This is a good one—so vivid! I like it set against the green green grass. Good to see on a gloomy November day.

    A perfect arrangement. Those colors really pop!

  10. Lovely project. Looking forward to seeing your flowers even though I am one of those weirdos who finds beauty in the austerity of late fall.

    I love seeing your summer flowers again, even if I can’t actually say it’s dreary here.

    How creative to display this summery arrangement in a patch of rich, green grass. Wonderful, Eliza.
