flowers left in my garden

Mornings are getting chillier , the leaves on the flowers  are started to turn brown , soon the flowers will be too.
I am  collecting seeds to plant in the spring.
Here are some that are just as lovely now as they were in the summer

Will plant more of the sunflower  next year.   Pretty color and the finch early in the morning feed on it, 
 I come out
with my morning coffee to watch them and hopefully get a picture too.
Another zinnia
I have several types planted





I purchased several of the arrangers from the garden shop at Ginter  
Position it on top of a vase


and just place the flowers



Tis the last rose of summer
left blooming alone
All her lovely companions
are faded and gone

Thomas Moore - The last Rose of Summer,  1830

Til next time

  2. Hi Betsy! Yes, the flowers and leaves will all be brown soon. But they sure are pretty now. That's good to collect seeds for next year though. I love that last rose of summer. How pretty. Happy Thursday! Gina
