Last of my flowers from the garden.

Feeling kind of sad today and COLD. Sad because I have to put my gardens to rest for the winter months. But I will use the long cold winter months to plan some new flower beds and other gardening projects that I have running through my head. There is a freeze warning for our area tonight, so I gathered up some remaining blooms and herbs from my gardens and made up a little arrangement. I tell you my fingers are smelling so good from the Sage, Lemon Balm, Lavender and all the other flowers and herbs that I cut today for my arrangement. I feel like going outside and roll in the herbs like a cat does in a bed of catnip...ahhhh the fragrance is so nice..but it is a bit too cold to do that plus I may look like a crazy woman and scare away our customers! I hope you all have a wonderfully cozy weekend.

I am with you!
I have brought many of my pots in and will try to keep them until Spring. It worked well last year. Hope to keep them all alive!
Have a wonderful weekend~

I enjoyed my visit to your blog. The flower arrangement is so pretty. Love the Fall colors--trees have not completely turned here. The poinsettias are beautiful! I wish I lived near by to be able to see them in person.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Love,
Marie
