A motley bunch of flowers in my vase today--the last survivors of my gardens. The days are becoming decidedly chilly...the high yesterday (when I picked these flowers) was only 45F, and it's 27 this morning. I've begun cleaning up the gardens and doing the fall planting, so there isn't much to choose from, but I did find a few bright blossoms here and there...
I only had a few echinacea flowers in my garden this year, but someone very kindly sent me some seeds so that should be remedied soon. ;)
The toadflax didn't do much all summer since it was so hot and dry, but it revived as soon as the cool weather set in and that 24 degree night didn't seem to concern it a bit!
Evening dame's rocket is a late spring-early summer bloomer, but one of my plants has been determinedly putting out a few flowers all summer and fall!
French mallow keeps putting out a stray flower here and there...
Most of the nasturtiums were killed by the frost, but there were a couple of plants hiding under other flowers that made it.
'Emperor William' bachelor's buttons continue to bloom sporadically too...
But the petunias! I can hardly believe how hardy these are...they also survived that 24 degrees and are still blooming beautifully!
Here they are, still bringing color to the "seed garden".
