A couple of weeks ago I went out to my flowerbeds and chopped a few of the perennials down to the ground in preparation for winter. My daisies and flax were done blooming and my iris plants were starting to turn brown. Well, what was I met with about a week later? Rebellion. Fresh blooms! The dear little plants weren't ready to go to bed for the winter. The flax was 1/2 as tall, but thicker and blooming. The daisy patch sent up one last stalk for the summer and it was blooming proudly in the sun. It was such a surprise, but it made my day!

Compare this one solitary flower to the daisy "bush" that it used to be!

Burning Bush




  1. Beautiful! I have noticed a few of these last stubborn blooms, and thought how out of place they look when all around is fall colors. I just noticed a wayward flower today...bright pink. And all around it were the fallen leaves of gold and orange. This is THE most beautiful time of year I believe!

  2. Thats wild - mine are just plain dead - no hope now Ü

  3. I love that little daisy! So cute that it's trying to grow now. :)

  4. I love your daisy bush. Went back to have a look. But I think I like the flax best. Beautiful blue. Never seen flax before. Isn't God the His love of variety amazing!?

  5. Some forms of rebellion are quite welcome!

  6. I didn't know that you enjoyed gardening too!


  7. Charity- I do enjoy it quite a bit! Our mechanic has a large field beside his shop that has been empty, and this year they tilled it nicely and are advertising the space as a free community garden. You just call and reserve a lot. I'm thinking I might take them up on the offer, since they are only a mile and a half away!


Your comments make my day, thank you!
