A Tiny Bit of Summer

The NVO cleaned out the remaining flower beds this weekend,
and look what he rescued:
 A few remaining bachelor buttons from last summer!
These were the flowers grown from the 4/$1 seed packets from the Dollar Store wrapped up on this post.
Boy, talk about a lot of bang for the buck!
And check out the test tube vase...just perfect for my scientist hubby!

I miss you, Summer, but we will see  you next year. :-)

OK, it's time to get back to the season at hand before it's gone. ;-)


  1. Beautiful flowers!
    Greetings, RW & SK

  2. Lovely!! Those slim vases look perfect for these flowers:)

  3. What a beautiful remnant of summer! One of the best colors in the garden!

  4. So pretty! It was almost 100 here today! Crazy! Yesterday was cool and I wore my boots. Today, i was knee deep in the pool!!!

  5. Love the blue of those flowers - what a lovely reminder of both the summer that's gone and the one to come! They look wonderful in those test tube vases too! E x

  6. They are beauties. We call them corn flowers here in the UK but I like your name, stirs images of rather lovely men in jackets with a little blue flower. Jo x

  7. Pretty flowers - you definitely got your monies worth. :)

  8. I love these flowers. I have had mixed success planting them from seed but when they do grow, I have tons of them.

  9. Very pretty Astri I can't believe they have lasted this long, I have a few brave roses blooming but now that the frosts have come, they will soon be gone too. :)

  10. What a lovely purple flowers, my favourite colour, by the way :)
