Every autumn is another turned page, another chapter completed, a bit more perspective on the full story of our lives: the rising and the falling, the discovery and loss, the sacrifice and surprise. So let’s harvest all the light and life and goodness that we can. Here and now, during the sweet golden hour of the year. || Words by Austin Salisbury. Feeling these words especially in the light of the deep tragedy that has happened this past week. Remembering the simple joy and deep blessing of gathering together every November and all holiday season.
This cream and pink bouquet with a pop of burgundy just makes my heart sing. A soft elegance is hard to ignore!

❄️🌸I told myself to cool it (heheh) with the winter annuals but do you know what it’s like to be constantly teased by HEB/Lowe’s offerings? I couldn’t resist the temptation.😈I know next to nothing about mums other than to deadhead and give sun.☀️🤷🏻♀️Do you grow mums? As annuals, perennials? Tell me your secrets.🌷🌸🌺

Burgundy blush bridal bouquet. Sending to Canada 🇨🇦 as long with bridesmaids bouquets, buttonholes and corsages. This beautiful bride is getting married New Year Eves. How lovely to go into a new year as a married couple 💕
Thank you for the calls and emails about when our #dahlia tubers will be available. It will be later in November. We are fortunate to have many customers in the southern regions of the United States. For those in the South who wish to grow dahlias, here is some info. John Kreiner, breeder of Amhurst cultivars, is the expert when it comes to heat tolerant dahlias. He has been growing them in the deep south for over 30 years. He planted his first blooms in zone-8b San Antonio and today he gardens in zone 8a Atlanta. John suggests the two most important things to growing dahlias are to be sure to select heat-tolerant ones and to mulch them. However, he prioritizes a heat tolerant dahlia over the importance of mulch. The Dahlia Society of Georgia has created a list of heat tolerant dahlias. You can find it here:
https://www.dahliasocietyofgeorgia.com/downloads/Heat%20Tolerant%20Dahlias_Alphabetical.pdf From that list, we will be selling: Ben Huston; Belle of Barmera; Camano Sitka; Envy; Ferncliff Copper; Gitts Attention; Gitts Perfection; Hakuyou; Harvey Koop; Hollyhill Big Pink; Innocence; L.A.T.E.; Mingus Toni; Parkland Rave; Scaur Swinton; Show ’n’ Tell; Spartacus;
Sterling Silver; Tartan; Vassio Meggos; Verda; and Verrone’s Sandra J. Of course, we will have many other varieties also available. 📷 Spartacus dahlia

Home to a sea of sweet peas, waves of poppies and before that sounds too fabulous—a load of work. Thalictrum flopped and so used here as froth with Shirley poppies, sweet peas and Daucus ‘dara’. Zoom in—jet lagged I probably took twenty close-ups of this one, imaging myself a bee. Special thanks to @leisure_thebrand for supporting my work.

Nesting. I’m still learning to cluster, group, nestle...and some plants make it easier than others. Cotinus branches fade out so nicely once nearing bloom. Here I used Astrantia, a rosy stock, butterfly ranunculus ‘Ariadne’, and a few flecked sweet peas. Resisted pushing the pink to roses and happy I did. Not like me to go towards ‘less is more’ but there it is (or isn’t). #urn#flowerarranging
