We celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving on October 12.   My brother was visiting at my mom’s and picked a beautiful bouquet of flowers from her garden for my Thanksgiving table.   Aren’t the dahlia beautiful?  There were many different flowers in that bouquet. 

 When all the other flowers were ready to be thrown out I realized that one bunch had dried beautifully.

I’ve set them into a silver tea pot where they look lovely.   It is some sort of decorative tree but we don’t know what its called.  

Does anyone know what kind of tree it is?  They only flower at the end of the summer and are a lovely shade of PINK.    Even now there are flowers on my mom’s tree however because of the weather hers are not dry…just very decorative.

I hope you’ll be able to visit the other Pink Saturdays at least bit by bit because the list has grown.

Have a lovely weekend.  Judi

  5. Good Morning Judi! How was your Thanksgiving? I didn’t know that you celebrated Thanksgiving in October. Pretty neat. I always love to learn new things. The dahlia’s are gorgeous. I have a neighbor who has been growing generations of dahlias! They are so large and vibrant! I wish I could help you on the tree flowers. They are lovely dried! Have a wonderful weekend. pink hugs, Ellen

  10. Your flowers are beautiful. You have inspired me to try to do something with some dried roses I have been saving. I thought maybe the pink flowers in Chicago were azaleas, too. It’s always so good to visit you. Thanks for your sweet comments. Love, Faith

  11. You are so lucky to be able to still pick fresh flowers this time of year. Enjoyed my visit to your blog,
    Hugs,
    Judy

  12. Hi Judy we haven’t met before but I know your a Canadian friend.
    The flowers are PeeGee Hydrangeas for sure. They dry so nicely and last the longest in my garden also.

  13. Those dahlias are gorgeous! My Mom has a similar pink bush, we call the Snowball Bush. I think it is a type of hydrangea. I cut them and hang them upside down and they dry beautifully! They seem to get a pink blush after we’ve had some really cool nights here in the Wash DC area 🙂

  16. Hi Judi! Oh, what beautiful flowers and Pink, or course. Sorry, I don’t know what the last little flowers are, but I’ve just looked up and read some of your posts and someone guessed.
    Yes, my mother is still living with us. They’ve said it’ll be 6 months until her condo is ready for move in, but hopefully it won’t be that long!! 😉
    Be a sweetie,
