Glowing

A dahlia glows in the evening sun. 

I spent the whole day gardening, except for a morning visit to the local farmer's market, where I picked up my first quart of home grown strawberries.  That, to my mind, is a perfect day.

I agree. There is nothing better than to find yourself covered in dirt at the end of the day!

That colour is stunning. I love dahlias. I'm told they're not fashionable, but neither am I so I don't care.

Beautiful! I love dahlias but am too lazy to grow them because i can't be bothered taking them up in the fall. Thanks for sharing yours.
