Flowers- Oct 1st

It’s flower flaunting time at Tootsies again, so why not visit her blog, and find out how it is to be gardening in Zone 3.
We also live in zone 3, so our challenges are similar. Since it froze here during the week, I had to cheat to put up flower photos today. On Monday, I went out to the garden and picked lots of flowers…one last chance for dahlia bouquets, and I was so happy I did. On Wednesday I dug up the tubers and now will store them for the winter.
There are still a few mums in bloom, as well as the lime hydrangea and a few roses.
The first bouquet contains coleus, dahlias, Endless Summer hydrangea, pink mums, and Victoria salvia.

 The bouquet below consists of dahlias, coleus, and variegated Artemisia.

I love how pretty each boquet is! you did a wonderful job building these out of your own blooms! It is just such a hard time of year...we have to say goodbye to our gardens...and all the lovely blooms!

So very pretty Millie. I especially like the addition of coleus.

Both of your bouquets are so beautiful, Millie, you definitely have the touch. Not just to grow them, but also to arrange and show them. I love both of those. We must be on the computer at the same time again, I just went over to see what my latest post looks like and there were no comments, I was gone for a few minutes and came back and you had left a sweet message. Hope you are having a nice evening.
