Finally some colorful flowers! A few sprigs of phlox now that more is blooming, some bee balm that had been knocked over by something, and the very last daylily of the year.
Traditionally the vase on the table by my front door has a selection of what’s blooming in the yard, from the first blooms to the last, then a bouquet of dried flowers and leaves all through the winter.
Blooming flowers have been hard to come by this year. We had a few late freezes that stalled some plants entirely, like the hostas, which still show frost damage and had few blooms on some of the plants. Others were just delayed. The white-tailed deer have walked past their usual forage that I let grow free at the end of the yard to chew up all my perennials, including ones they’ve never touched before—tall phlox, bee balm, even the hostas that weren’t damaged, everything but the daylilies, which flourished.. . . . . . .
