Flowers in the House
It is the last Monday in October and Jane is hosting a fith (flowers in the house) party. Normally, I would not be participating because we would have no flowers as we are mostly a field grown flower operation. However we have built season extension low tunnels and hoopty do high tunnels and are now able to have a few flowers earlier and later in our season. So for late October we have dahlias, dianthus, a few more lilies, snapdragons and gladiolas still blooming. Here are a few vases of flowers we have in our house this week.
Our goal is to provide more flowers to our designers longer in the season with Thanksgiving being our target date. We have not ever done this without being wiped out by a heavy frost which hasn't happened yet. But we are keeping the cold Oregon rains off our flowers which is a HUGE help so the last component will be, will the flowers keep blooming as the light levels keep going down. We shall see.....
Join the party and see what others are doing in their homes. Hop on over to smallbutcharming.
