This morning I tried something new to me with dried flowers. It was nice to challenge my fingers to something different, but do I like it? I'm not sure.

The handful of roses I brought inside a few days ago is opening up. We take big breathfuls of their scent a few times each day. I can't think of any other plans that get me quite as excited as roses. I'm grateful for these last few blooms.

Here are a few of the last roses of the year cut from the garden this morning. It was a tough season for growing roses this season. All the pounding rain storms really took a toll on the flowers. However, the plants themselves grew beautifully with barely a black spot in sight. Hopefully this means next season will be bountiful.

Today I got very muddy digging up some of the dahlias to save for next year. We had so much rain over the weekend that the shovel squelched with each clump of tubers that came out of the ground.

This spring I discovered how easy it was to propagate strong dahlia plants by taking cuttings. That alone is why I'm going to keep growing this crop.

Thanks for the photo.

This week we took the final few buckets of flowers from the field. Another couple days of heavy rain, and potential freezing temperatures mean I really have to give up on all the summer flowers.

The flower fields are fading, but the maples around our house are bursting with color right now. How lucky we are to see the changing seasons.

Last night the temperature dipped down below 40 F and the dahlias, zinnias and basil really suffered. It is the middle of October, so fall weather is right on time, even if I'm not ready.

One (last?) bucket of flowers came in to dry and we started harvesting seeds for next year. Seed saving is one of my favorite tasks.

I love this little tiny wreath, especially the wiggly bit of the grape vine that sticks out.

Just two years ago we visited the farm we bought (from the west coast) for the second time. We walked around the hayfield for the first time and were filled with grand plans for what we would grow.

It's been grey and cold and four inches of rain fell over the weekend. I've been inside making more wreaths and a big mess on the floor. You can see them all at the link in my bio.

One of my favorite flowers is black knight scabiosa. The seeds look like little shuttlecocks. The flowers are deep purple and always covered in pollinators. They add a lot to arrangements, but are more thrilling because of all the pigment they hold.

I'm a novice at natural dying, but have gotten purple to blue to green colors from these flowers. My favorite gardening jacket in this photo was dyed green using scabiosa. It's a bit uneven, so it will get a second treatment later this month.

Thanks to for the photo.

There have been many magical moments in the first few days of fall. Watching a quadruplet of monarch butterflies fluttering around the flower field has been one.

Thanks to for catching a photo. (My attempts have been unsuccessful!)

Dried flower wreath #2

Listening to a podcast, watching the cars go by

This wreath was made on a relaxing afternoon, sitting on our wrap around porch. Cars went by, birds were in the trees and the neighbor chickens came to say hi. A little bit of lazy summer wrapped up for the rest of the year.

This wreath is full of summer flowers that will last until the next growing season: zinnias, silene, strawflower, statice and feverfew on a bed of sweet Annie. The wreath form is grape vine pulled out of a tree.

This wreath will last for a very long time if they are in a protected spot that isn't too sunny. I have one on my covered porch all year long.

See the link in my bio to order.

Just go for it and see what happens

This wreath was made as the sample during class to show I knew what I was doing. It's a smaller wreath, and looks good on a dining table with a pillar candle (or three) tucked inside.

This wreath is full of summer flowers that will last until the next growing season: celosia, strawflower, statice and zinnias on a bed of sweet Annie. The wreath form is birch branches from a tree that fell down in the spring.

This wreaths will last for a very long time if they are in a protected spot that isn't too sunny. I have one on my covered porch all year long.

It's one of the best times of the year out in the garden. Flowers are still abundant, but so are seeds to save. Cooler days and nights mean the colors last and last.

Somehow I'm wearing a handmade outfit. My first ever made are still going strong (with many spots mended). I don't remember whete the jacket pattern is from, only that there was a long break in-between starting it and finishing it.

Dried wreath #1 Harvest Season Interrupted by a Toddler Who Didn't Have a Nap.

I usually make wreaths during nap time or after bedtime. Some days neither of those times seems to exist.

This wreath is full of summer flowers that will last until the next growing season: zinnias, apple of Peru, strawflower and feverfew on a bed of sweet Annie. The wreath form is an invasive mutliflora rose cane.

That's wreaths will last for a very long time if they are in a protected spot that isn't too sunny. I have one on my cover porch all year long.
