The Last Flowers
The lemon dinner plate dahlia just kept making flowers. The only down side is that the stems weren't strong enough to hold the flowers up. Cheery colour.
I let some of the broccoli flower because the bees appreciate the late blooms. And anyway, I like the buttery yellow flowers.
But even with few flowers, the leaves are really attractive. We had a very dry September, and I probably should have watered it instead of letting it fend for itself.
So that's about it for the flowers for this year. I think I have one lonely pansy flower out there today and a few sparse buds on the purple salvia.
