Friends, I’m sorry for not keeping up with my website through the most beautiful part of the summer, and it is Fall already. Maybe it’s because I was out mostly admiring my garden? That is partially true.
I have had wonderful results from the Dahlias in the new Dahlia bed that we put in. They have never been better and shot up like weeds, towering 4-5 feet with so many flowers that we couldn’t keep our vases full. Here are some of the beauties that I have had this summer. And they are still coming.
The Red Pinwheel Dahlia is one of my favorites.
Isn’t this Orange Dahlia a beauty. It is also a favorite.
This is about the closest you get to Blue in a Dahlia. The true color is actually a little bluer.
Cheyenne is a real favorite of mine. I saw this at on a garden tour and had to have it.
This Purple and White Dahlia has been one we have loved for a very long time. This year they are bigger and prettier than ever.
My Tomatoes have, likewise, never produced so many, now that I have had them in my new raised beds. I finally cut them all down a week ago when we started getting a lot of rain and they were all splitting. Most I roasted, and a bunch we ate.
I have particularly liked the Green Tiger Tomatoes, which are an heirloom variety. They were sweet, but took a long time to ripen. Even the Yellow Pear Tomatoes were really good, and I have not had good results with those for years. The flavor had been rather bla. This year they were quite tasty.

One of the reasons I have been AWOL has been that I discovered Bubblews, and have been writing there. I have made about $200 over the coarse of two months.

I also started a Zazzle Store, named Doodled By Lionmom100, which I have wanted to do for awhile. I have a lot of photos, some of which are really good. Why not add them to products. I only have a few so far, but it is a start. These are for Halloween and are manipulation a of photos of my Orange Kitty, Raja. Take a look at those, too.
I promise to not be so tardy in posting. I have missed all of you. Happy Fall, everyone!

Your dahlias are lovely, the orange one looks just like a bloom I saw today on a dahlia plant that was left in the ground over winter and grew by itself this year, and is blooming for the first time now. It would have done better if I had dug it, maybe I will this time.
I love that orange one. I believe that we will try leaving ours in the ground this year. I plan to cover the area with a tarp, it prevents them from getting soggy. And a lot of leaves insulates them from the cold.
Thanks for linking up to Garden Tuesday! Your dahlias are beautiful!
Thanks and thanks for stopping by.
Hi Yael! So nice to hear from you today, and glad you liked our entry area. We had a really busy summer here, and it’s still pretty busy, so I’ve not been able to blog or play in the garden as much as I would like, but still enjoying some tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, and the apples are about ready to pick. Still have some pretty zinnias and sunflowers out there, too. Now I have dahlia lust after seeing your gorgeous ones!
