The End of one Season and the Start of Another

Well, that is probably the end of my fresh flower offerings for this year. My garden got a patchy frost last week and the zinnias are now done. The cosmos and dahlias are still going strong but I'm leaving those for the bees; along with the fall asters that are their favourites. I did make… Continue reading HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2022

Mother’s Day and More

We are all still waiting in anticipation of spring finally arriving. The flowers are telling me that growth is easily delayed by 2 weeks compared to the last 2 years.
