Today I managed to collect the last of the Fall Flowers that are still in bloom for a mini bouquet. I wanted to gather them up before another hard frost hits, so far the frost has been a little north of us, but I know it will be hitting our area soon. These blooms are planted closer to the house and that will help protect them for a while. Our log home absorbs the heat so well and retains it, and I’m sure the flowers can feel the heat radiating off the logs. The year I planted my garden a foot from the house was the best year for production that I ever had, makes me think that was my best idea yet.
If you only have a few blooms left in the garden add leaves as a fill in. these bright green leaves help the bouquet look fuller and bring a pop of color to the mix. One can’t be picky when there is very little to choose from in the garden and it gave me another opportunity to use my vintage coffee can that I love so much.
Has anyone had frost in your area yet? The one nice thing about having a frost is you no longer have to mow the grass here. I think ours will need one more time of it and then we will be done for the season.
