Flowers and Garden - Sept 15, 2011

Last night we had a slight frost, but only the dahlias were affected by it....tonight there are frost warnings again... I had so hoped we would have a longer frost free period this year, but soon all our gardening will be a memory...thankfully it is somewhat preserved in photos and of course, our memories. Yesterday I went out and picked lots of flowers and plunked them in various containers:


My hubby was up on the roof today, cleaning the skylight, and took a shot of the yard from up there:



A few more photos...


I am joining Tootsie for her regular weekly flower flaunting. Tootsie is keeping her chin up in a time of adversity..kudos to her...

How wonderful to have so many beautiful flowers inside your house. I spotted the Vanilla Marigolds, like mine! Loved the Hydrangeas and the group of container plants you showed. Fabulous colour!

Millie, your flowers are simply gorgeous: especially your hydrangeas. Oh, I do love hydrangeas! Wishing you a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

I love your bouquet of hydrangeas and the shot from the roof is lovely too.
I can see why you don't want a heavy frost for awhile-it is too pretty.
We are having a cool spell this weekend but I hope we don't get frost for awhile yet.

Have a lovely weekend,
Carolyn

Hi Millie, thanks for you kind comment on my post. Fall is definitely in the air here today. Your flowers are looking quite spectacular - even from the roof! I also picked a bouquet of hydrangeas to dry. And, I found them to have many earwigs hiding inside! Gross!!! Do you have earwigs there? I hope not! I hope your weekend is lovely. Pamela

Millie, it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful your arrangements are. You do such stunning work with flowers.

I wanted to drop by and thank you for the kind sentiments you left on my last post. I'm just now starting to blog again, and I wanted to be sure and let you know how much I appreciate your kindness.

Hope things are well with you and yours and that you are enjoying the change of seasons...

XO,

Sheila
