Flowers in November

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.

Real flowers, Local & Sustainably Grown!
