I've been slacking a little on the photos lately - took some shots, just didn't post them. But I'm back! So we have some flowers, a butterfly - and of course, the Boom Doggie. A note on the big yellow ones - those are dinner plate dahlias. In our growing zone, you are supposed to pull dahlias for the winter. I don't. The first winter they were in was mild, so not surprising they survived. Last winter was horrible and this spring the area was all dug up for the fence and I kind of thought the dahlias were goners. Nope, they were just a little late. And seriously, in October, still blooming!
