Thankful Thursday

Tomorrow, Rhondi is hosting a Thankful Thursday. I think this is a nice way to re-connect to our inner selves and think about what we are thankful for. I am posting mine now because I will be at work tomorrow. Please go visit Rhondi's blog to see the participants. Thanks Rhondi for hosting this.
I consider myself blessed. I have a family which is in good health, and my kids seem to be going in the right direction.

I am also thankful for rain and sun. My garden beds are extra nice this summer. I am sharing pictures of my dahlias. I love the redness of this one below, deep red; the tubers were given to me by my boss last spring. Feel free to click at images to enlarge.


This one is a dinner-size dahlia... it is about 8 inches in diameter. I have these in whites and yellows. The yellows are slow bloomers ... the buds are still tight.



I love this one too; variegated orange. I should try to find the catalog where I bought this; I think this is called Mrs. Eileen, not sure.


This one is variegated purple. I used to have only one of these, but they multiply every year, so now I have more than a dozen. This is it for now folks. I wish I had more time to think but it's past 11pm and a girl has to go to work tomorrow. Hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures ... they are all a part of God's creation and we have Him to thank for!

We need rain here. The burned hills are tinder dry, and we're still in danger of having another brush fire. We are thankful, though, that we're miles away from the recent fire. Or is it still burning in Yosemite?

I like your lovely flowers.
