My recent posts have been about gardening because that too is my passion. Here in Florida you have to enjoy the flowers before the sun scorches them so I have been fortunate to enjoy these before the sun kills them. In the super hot days of summer the only plants that survive are the succulents. That time is soon to come! This Dahlia is from a Wal-mart bulb I planted in the fall. It is growing in my shade garden and so far doing very well.
