Am taking it a bit slowly tonight, just staying quiet. Today was a work day with lots of ups and downs so slow and peaceful is the goal tonight. :)
But what a joy to see this beauty this morning, the first of my beloved Dahlias this year!
These have been growing for 4 years now, with only one experiment of taking them out of the ground in the winter. Their gorgeous coloring and elegant leaves never cease to amaze me.
I'd like to experiment with pruning, so as to enlarge the blooms, but that takes much more time than I have to devote, so I do the best I can. Now, if someone could only show me how to keep Begonias in my area, I'd be very, very grateful! Enjoy your evening. :)
