A Week of Flowers – Day Two

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

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

Today, I’ll share a vase that didn’t get posted here on my blog. Taken in early October, you can see a beautiful sugar maple in the background. It definitely cheers me up to think back to when my garden was full of flowers and I had lots of vases around the house.

And since it is Monday, I will link to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her weekly meme In A Vase on Monday.

    A glorious vase Eliza, I love how the pink and purple in the flowers complements the yellow and gold of the October leaves in the background ๐Ÿงก

  10. Robin says:

    I’ve run out of ways to say “this is so beautiful.” This arrangement truly is (so beautiful). The colors are wonderful and that maple as a background is glorious. โค

  11. Treah Pichette says:

    Absolutely gorgeous! Wish that was sitting on my table right now in the midst of a grey & rainy day.

  12. Nice Eliza! Your flowers & Floral arrangements brighten my day!!

  13. That is a pretty arrangement. Posting flowers in the winter is a great idea.

  14. Alice says:

    Flowers have so many purposes…food for pollinators, making people happy, making seeds for the next generation of flowers. The Dahlia is exquisite. Thank you!

  15. sandyjwhite says:

    We have a cold, rainy day on tap. I needed a pop of color, Eliza!

  16. Oh how beautiful, Eliza. How I MISS my flowers and color already. And it is just November. *sigh* Can’t stop Winter. Let us both pray it is a mild one and it passes swiftly so glorious Spring can come once again. Here is to HOPE. xo

  17. Debbie says:

    I’ve never tried to grow dahlias, Eliza — perhaps next year! These are amazing!

  18. March Picker says:

    I do miss vases of flowers around the house, Eliza. Paperwhites in their forcing vases here just feel a little cold… Your front and center dahlia is such a beautiful bloom!

  19. Kris P says:

    I love both dahlias, Eliza, but the spidery white and magenta one is a stunner. Do you have a cultivar name for it?

  20. Now that’s something to brighten up a gray, rainy day! Love those colors.

  21. Love the combination of flowers and colors Eliza! Do you know what the name of the Salvia is? It’s lovely!

  22. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    I was thinking that surely Eliza can’t still hvae all these wonderful flowers growing in her garden in late November and then I read they were from October. But what lovely colours they are.

  23. Cathy says:

    October wasn’t that long ago but vases like this are certainly few and far between now. That’s a pretty dahlia in the foreground

  24. Another beauty. I agree that we miss our summer flowers but that makes them even sweeter when the season returns. It is such a thrill when the ephemerals bloom again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Love it! Dahlias as always but the Sugar Maple makes it sing.

  26. pbmgarden says:

    This is cheerful. All the flowers are pristine with beautiful colors. I love the cactus-type dahlia.

  27. Jet Eliot says:

    This is a great and much-appreciated theme. Your arrangement with the vibrant colors in the vase and in the background is very cheerful and uplifting. Thanks Eliza.

  28. What a stunning combination of summer and autumn!๐Ÿ™‚ Beautiful photos and flowers!๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Ah, so beautiful. Nothing cheers like flowers.

  30. A gorgeous combination and arrangement!
