November is here but this morning I was still able
to squeeze a bouquet out of the garden:

We are using this old buffet to hide our DVD/Video
 player and
the drawers provide storage:

As I was doing my photo shoot my husband was mowing the
grass outside.  I don't often have bouquets inside because
he has allergies.  This one won't be staying here.

Last week my husband spray painted our
2 patio sets.  I do like the lighter look.  
This summer he strengthened the deck,
poured new footings and gave it several
coats of stain so it is good to go safe.

I guess I better get back to washing windows......
hope you
have a lovely week!

It's a beautiful bouquet, which you can enjoy forever since you have captured it so well. The furniture looks terrific!

Your flowers and buffet are gorgeous. The buffet looks amazing. I'd love it if you would share this at our new link party.

What a beautiful bouquet! The flowers are so lovely! My geraniums are still holding up well here, and we still have lots of color and leaves on the trees. It has been a warm fall for us here in Michigan.
Your outdoor furniture looks great newly painted!
Happy November Bernideen. xo Deborah

A very beautiful bouquet. I just cut what I believe is the last one from the garden. Wish we could have them all year long but you poor hubby is allergic, ugh! The set looks nice lightened up and a great contrast to the deck.

Hi Bernideen, such beautiful photos! Love the staging and the attention to backgrounds in all your photos. You can bring a bouquet over to my house anytime you want! :) Thanks for sharing, and you can wash my windows anytime you want also! lol

Your flowers are beautiful Bernideen as your new painted patio set is also and your entire yard and house. It's just a dream house for any of us.
I have no more hydrangeas however have cosmos and other flowers to still pick in this extra warm November weather

Oh, B- how lovely! Those garden flowers still blooming, isn't it odd? It's the warmest November I have ever seen.

And your painted deck set and the AWESOME job your hubs did on your deck stain is wonderful! What a lovely view and place for a nice cuppa. Just gorgeous!

Hugs. ♥

Your flowers are still beautiful. Hate to say this, but I would be soooo sad if I couldn't have bouquets in the house year round.

Angela McRae said...

Wow, I can't believe you have such beautiful springlike blossoms this late in the year! Lovely!

Your bouquet is lovely Bernideen! I've cleaned the garden and readied it for winter. No more blooms for me. :) You and your hubby have worked so hard and your home is a testament of all your hard work! Love the patio sets in their new coat of paint. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
