Dahlias Get No Respect

My dahlia definately agrees with Rodney Dangerfield, "I don't get no respect". I have to admit it is not my favorite flower, doesn't evn make my top 5. But when I look around in my garden in summer after the first big bloom of roses and clematis, what's blooming? Not much. But over in the corner the dahlia is blooming it's heart out. Nice big blooms too, nothing wimpy about it. So here's to the dahlia, a welcome sight in the middle of summer!

A Bloom in Every Room!

Someone once said "a chicken in every pot" but my philosophy is "a bloom in every room". It doesn't have to be a grand bouquet-just a little snippet of something here and there. Even one frond of fern in a little bottle by the sink is nice. A little of God's creation brought into the house brings life to my home and a smile to my face as I go about doing my chores. If you have a wealth of blooms, consider sharing - your thoughtfulness might make someone's day!
