Flower Garden September 2012

I have done a poor job at photo documenting my garden this year.  Truth be told, the veggie garden went by the wayside while I spent most of my time with the flowers. :)  I am OK with that.

Zinnias remain my favorite summer flower.  They are so reliable to produce large, colorful, plentiful blooms all summer long.

This past week the weather turned cooler and this was the reminder I needed to realize my flowers will soon be gone.  *sniff sniff*  I had a friend hosting a fundraising event this weekend and last minute took 10 bunches of flowers to be sold proceeds benefiting her event. I used my pint canning rack to transport all the bunches quite successfully.

There is a mix of zinnias, cosmos, dahlias, sunflowers, and the foliage of my pink cosmos. I'm going to miss this garden when frost comes. 


  1. Jealous, jealous, jealous!

    I love the way the flowers look in the canning rack - a clever and pretty way of transporting them.

  2. Wow! It is really stunning. I bet your garden is more than colorful on the photos that you shared. I love it those blooms.
