    how gorgeous is that flower??? love the black background…. and the colors in the flower are splendid!!! wonderful work, my friend!!

  • Thanks….my friend Toni and I spent a good hour walking around this garden that was just full of different Dahlias…all just stunning. The owner came home while we were there and told us he had just had some of them in a flower show in Grand Rapids and he had won honors for his flowers. I’m just not surprised! Talk about a green thumb!
