Mother Nature gave me a bounty this month - one I did not expect. The cooler temperatures and plenty of recent rain really have caused the garden to perk up for one last flush of summer color as the fall blooms start coming, too.
For the dining room table:
The first (and perhaps last) dahlia of the season, cone flowers, two sedums (sedi?), garden phlox, and Lady's Mantle, with a few vitex leaves thrown in for good measure.
For the coffee table the last (maybe not!) of the mini-roses.
And, a bonus bunch for my chairside table - the last of the Shasta Daisies, and a handful of zinnias.
I couldn't be happier!
If you haven't already been, there .... please hop over to Jane's house (SmallButCharming) and see what else is showing up today. Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere should be starting to have spring flowers, you know.
