Brr....

Well tonight we are under a "hard freeze" warning.  I'm hoping it won't make it quite that low, but it seems very likely.  There was a chill in the air today, definitely a jacket day!  I think the high was 53. 
Yesterday I started cutting Hydrangeas because of this freeze warning.  I found a delphinium blooming a 2nd time out front.  I brought it in and added it to my Limelight Hydrangeas....this was a little vignette I created.  
I got a little aggressive and cut a lot of these Endless Summer Hydrangeas.  Their colors have started to fade already but they are prime to bring in and dry,  so I treated myself to a large bouquet. 
 It's hard to realize their size in these pictures, but the width on this bouquet is 27"!
This is the other side...still some pinks showing up!
I'm guessing there are at least 40 in this bunch!
So now if we get this hard freeze the fall colors will come on quickly.
It's such a beautiful time of the year.

In fact it's time for some apple cider!
Yum!
Of course it will warm up again here it always does!
How's your weather doing in your area?

  2. The weather is going steadily downhill as far as temperatures go and I don't share your confidence that it will warm up. The cider looks good.
