Day 832: Friday Flowers
Today I'm thinking about dahlias. The dark ones, particularly (I think they're called Arabian Nights?). I keep walking into stores -- even Starbucks! -- to find bouquets of the biggest, most beautiful I've ever seen, and the shopowners say they were donated by a generous customer. Wonder if it's the same person?
I suppose that means they grow nicely here. I think I will add them to must-plant-for-next-year list, which is getting kind of long.
For now, I'll admire these, and maybe hit up the farmers' market tomorrow morning (it's the last weekend!).
