When I took this photo of my vase the light was very bad and it's blurred but I can't do any better now. I'll try tomorrow.
Sometimes things just don't go to plan.
After a few light frost this month we had one which was more severe and that has finished off the Dahlias and reduced the Nasturtiums to a soggy mess. We knew it was coming and I've been lucky that I've been able to cut dahlias right to mid November. There were very few and the larger types just became a wet mess of petals.
Surprisingly I did find 2 or 3 flowers even after the frost and they are in my vase.
Dahlia - a couple of Karma Naomi, one Classic Rosamund and a couple of Labyrinth buds. They won't open and don't like the rain.
a few cosmos - very small and the last of these too.
Dill flowers - I have no idea why this is flowering
Chrysanthemum - Sheer purple
Persicaria - red dragon
I'm very happy still to have so much colour but the garden really doesn't look like this.
|The end of the dahlias. I'm going to dig most of them up but I will try leaving a few of the larger tubers in the ground.|
|The crazy Chrysanthemums. There is one plant going off the left here and one to the right. As I said before, I have no idea why they are so tall but I do know I didn't give them proper support.|
Thanks for visiting and do go over to Rambling in the Garden where Cathy encourages us to find what we can to put In a Vase on Monday. There are plenty if ideas to inspire you.
