The challenge for me today, was to see if I could do a vase of flowers for the house in the middle of November. I could see a few Calendulas from the window and decided to scout about for other flowers that still have some life left. In the bucket I have some Sour Grapes Penstemons, some Dianthus and a little yellow Rose. Notice the Zinnias behind are completely toasted.
|Not too many Calendulas to choose from. They look better from the window.|
|Found a few Hydrangeas in pretty autumn colors.|
It came out pretty nice especially after a half dozen freezing nights. Calendulas, Dianthus and Hydrangeas seem to be pretty tough flowers. See the one little yellow Rose that didn't know to quit.
