Homegrown Postcard: Dahlias by the Bucketful{7}

Dahlias, stealing the show, one stem at a time…

Dahlias and distractions take center stage today. For once, I’m a loss for words and eager to get outside.  So here’s a little sunshine in a bucket for you as I’m heading out the door to secure a hearty hug from the final days of summer. The breeze is light, the sun determined, and the garden offers an encore performance at every turn.
