This should have happened Friday, what can I say?
This is a new dahlia we got this spring. Not the best shot. I still have some issues dealing with light reflecting off some flowers.
And the close up. Doesn't look quite real, does it? You can see this planter from the kitchen window. We did peaches last weekend and I realized as I was sorting, blanching and peeling that this flower looks a lot like a nice ripe Improved Elberta.
And the peaches were wonderful this year. We had a couple of days of really hot weather to get the fruit ripening and a few cool damp days to ramp up the juice. But, they were so ready to go that just putting them in boxes was bruising them. Didn't lose a one though. And they're safe in their jars just waiting for winter to give back some of that sunshine.
