On my way back from the mailbox, I looked up in the sky and was startled to see that the first of my tree dahlia buds have opened! Alert the media!
I feel like I can breathe now and won’t be devastated by our first frost… ’cause I got to see these pale pink exotic beauties bloom for the second year in a row. Last year was dicier and a much closer call. They’d barely opened when we got hit with a frost that browned the foliage and scorched the petals.
Giving thanks for warm Novembers… yet hoping it’s not due to global warming.
