I managed to find a few flowers for a vase this week, despite more frosty mornings. I love these brave little flowers that seem to hold on as long as they can!
In my garden, Sweet William blooms late June through most of July, but this year some of my plants have surprised me with a few late flowers!
Mountain Bluet was a gift from our neighbor. It blooms almost nonstop all summer and into the fall. The second picture was taken last November!
Lavender seed heads...
The chives have a few flowers right now...
The last nicotiana flowers. Th plants still look healthy despite the frosts, but the flowers are gone now.
The heartsease is thriving!
And that's my vase for this week! I'm looking forward to seeing what others made at: ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2017/10/16/in-a-vase-on-monday-art-nouveau/
