While there are a few places in the County that have had a frost or two already, there are many other places, including around my little village, that have not. Nonetheless, nights are getting longer and nighttime temperatures are cooler and most annuals and perennials have long stopped sending out new flowers. I spent last week snipping off final blooms from zinnias, dahlias, strawflowers, Pelagorium and a few other things, filling more than one small vase, that I’ll show you in the weeks to come. Today, in keeping with Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday theme, here is the lovely straw flower ‘Silvery Rose’ that I’ve been cutting since August, plus a few Zinnias. I’ve collected seeds from both and look forward to starting the cycle again next March. Have a great week everyone!
