Another Dahlia

Just because it's pretty!

We live in what could be called an odd mini microclimate.  The house is in a wood consisting of beech, oak and maple.  We don't have a lot of space cleared so the trees tend to keep cold off the ground.  I still have morning glories and other flowers happily blooming.  Hopefully the frost will stay away for a few more weeks.


It's stuck in an old mug. Not the best color choice, but it was at hand.   I often save them for various uses.

It looks like we are having a sunny week end with temps in the sixties.  Toes crossed that all have equally enjoyable days.

As always, thanks for stoping by...........*s*

  2. Dearest Suzi,
    What a lovely Dahlia, yes with all the trees you have a lot of buffer and keep the soil warm longer.
    We too have blue skies all week long and very warm, almost summery temperatures 76°F today and 87°F for Monday even if the garden is bone dry; we enjoy it!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Hi Mariette....I love having flowers in bloom while the trees are changing.
      I hope you get enough rain so your garden is happy, but not so much that you get floods!
      Enjoy the week end!
