I am sure everyone recognizes my "grumpiness" as pure FOLLY. I KNOW Rob does.

I like to start the morning with some coffee. Especially with really nice coffee.

Newly open and older. Color mellows a bit, or someone added more milk to the coffee. Hilarious!

I love the rosewood color of the falls upon opening! Still pretty when they soften to that warm brownish color too Thumbs up

The bottom one must not be a TB; what is it? Besides gorgeous, that is. What a wonderful field of color!

I think that it slows down when you run out of space for new ones. I don't think that's me yet. Lawn and garden still exist. The secret gardener had dahlias planted in the vegetable garden too, ha.

Hmmmmm - this year I planted two 4x 8 ft beds that are usually my tomato beds with dahlias - crop rotation - right?

Yes, those are Louisiana iris. I took the pictures this spring at Plantation Point Nursery when we were there for the SLI Convention. I never did get the name of the red one. It was amazing to see that many Louisiana iris in bloom.

Just enabling.

Coal Seams. Mine is darker than it looks here.


Leslie, love Buffer Zone and Coffee Whispers.

Wow Carl!! Fields of beauty.

Lovey dubby those orange beards on Team Spirit. Hurray!
