Farewell to Flowers

Today we are saying farewell to the final flowers of the season. We have had a dusting of snow and cold temperatures.
Soon our lakes and sloughs will be hard, but not yet. 
 I admire the flowers that perservere through the Fall.
Often they live in pots. 
This gives them a flower world advantage, I suppose, but I don't care. 
Perennials in North Dakota are amazing. 
How roots tough enough to withstand our winters can produce such delicate blooms is miraculous. 
Whipped in the wind, the outer petals protect the inner blossoms. 
 Tropical looking drama on sturdy branches.
 How can you grow here?
All the flowers, dill, and raspberries are ready for their long Winter's nap in GriggsDakota.

  1. We decided to do the centerpieces ourselves and to have the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages professionally made. So it was important to me that I find someone who would help us make it all cohesive. same day delivery sydney
