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!
