The California fires are leading to some pretty colorful sunsets. At dusk yesterday, my backyard was bathed in an eerie orange glow. Even my orange daylilies were extra orange.
The other day, I cut back my tree dahlias. They’ve grown taller each year and since I really don’t need them to reach 20+ feet, I thought I’d try this. They were already a bit frighteningly tall, and it’s only June. Now they’re a little over 6 feet, and beginning to bush out.
