The flaming trees against the brilliant blue sky were incredible.
I finished my morning walk in my neighbor’s back yard. Bob and Myrtle are in their 90’s. Bob has emphysema and yet, every year he manages to create new dahlia hybrids and plant hundreds of them. When we first moved here eight years ago he planted 1500 dahlias! It looked like someone flicked colorful paint all over the field.
As I walked around on the soft, wet earth and took pictures, it dawned on me that dahlias are the fashionistas of the flower world! Can’t you just see petal hair and fancy hats topping a delicate face?
