Last of the Summer Flowers
I actually still have a few dahlias blooming while the warm days continue. We had a freakish rain storm yesterday that produced hail a few blocks away, but we were spared. Hail is tough on many of the large agaves that get scarred for life (well, at least the life of the succulent leaves that live for years) from the injuries endured by the pelting ice so I am glad we missed the onslaught. Today, while watching football, I am browsing the bulb catalogs for some fall purchases that I have been promising myself to take care of for a while now. So many choices.
