My obsessive need to collect dried hydrangeas has left me with dozens of stems. I also still have lavender from last year, Oregano 'Kent's Beauty', peonies, Astilbe, roses, and Liatris.

Meanwhile, in case you hadn't realized the beauty of Salvia besides attracting bees and hummingbirds, they also make pretty long-lasting cut flowers. I picked some 'Wendy's Wish', and Salvia c. 'Coral Nymph' along with Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow' and a cut stem of Hydrangea p. 'Pinky Winky' before we had a serious freeze a couple of nights ago.
I know this time of year is marked by the dearth of blooms that come from our actual gardens. Two months out of the year the simplest, and even obviously flawed flowers are given pride of place indoors. In my garden it's March and November. With that in mind, I've snapped a photo of this final bouquet.
And this ends my November post in Carol's May Dreams Gardens Garden Blogger Bloom Day, held on the 15th of each month to tell about what's going on in gardens throughout the world.
