Temperatures Saturday and Sunday were around 80 F°, a lovely weekend. White, semi-cactus type Dahlia ‘Tsuki Yori No Shisha’ produced several nice blooms this week and I found one pinkish D. ‘Great Silence.’ There are still a few buds on the plants. Skippers and bees are finding their way to the few zinnias scattered through the beds. I was excited to notice a couple of hydrangeas that still have some nice color. Most flower heads turned brown long ago.

    Yoir flowers all look pristine, and it is hard to believe it is November! Especially with such high temperatures as you had over the weekend. How lovely! Gorgeous arrangement Susie. I love the way the Hydrangeas lighten it up a bit. That white cactus dahlia is a winner. 😃

    A truly beautiful display, especially for November, Susie. Your dahlias may have had something of a slow start but I think they’re making up for it on the tail end of the season. I still have one dahlia in a barrel with buds but I’m guessing I may only get one more handful of blooms from those – if I’m lucky.

    I know I say it often, but every week you thrill us with a detailed and balanced arrangement Susie – do you find the actual placing of the blooms meditative? I hope so. Yours seem to show no sign of finishing for the season, unlike here, where dahlias are on borrowed time and the zinnias are over

      Oh yes it’s all very meditative to me (Ha! especially if it’s going well!) Cold front is moving in so not sure how long the show will continue but it’s been a nice fall.

    I feel like I’m looking back a couple months in time! Or dreaming of warm, late summer days. Beautiful arrangement, Susie, the colors are soft and a nice mix of textures. I need to order some cactus dahlias for next year, I love D. ‘Tsuki Yori No Shisha’ … it’s a winner.

    Arborvitae is unexpected. It is uncommon here. I sort of like the foliage as cut foliage though. We do not have much selection of evergreens. (Redwood is very common though.)

        Dawn redwood is likely happier there than it is in the milder climate here. Giant redwood might be happier there as well. This climate is closer of course, but is too mild for it. However, coastal redwood, which is native here, would likely dislike the cooler winter weather and snow there. It lives across Puget Sound from Seattle, but is not happy about it.

    Oh I LOVE this Susie! To my mind, hydrangeas are prettiest at this stage, with their greeny pink hue. You’ve matched them perfectly with the pastel zinnias and ruffled dahlias. Gorgeous!

      Thanks Amy! Hydrangeas were a big surprise. No frost yet. Usually comes in Oct, then gets warm again! Nice to have plants continuing without getting so brown. Hope to see you Sunday!
