October 15, 2021 Friday

 Hi Everyone!  I have gardened for years.  I have grown dahlias before but this year I decided I was going to order some different varieties and grow them again.  I hadn't grown dahlias in about 20 years.  After a slow start, they seemed to come into their own and are still blooming!  Here are my beauties this year.

Cafe au Lait

Hamari Gold

Sierra Gold


Rip City

The tag got lost, so I'm not sure what this one is called.

I have ordered some more dahlias for more variety next year.  I'm not going to put them in pots like I did this year, they will be in raised beds.  I especially love the dinnerplate ones and look forward to growing more of those.  So pretty!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!



Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
