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.

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!
