She grew prize-winning Dahlias and had a garden of these on the other side of the garage. It's a tuberous plant related to the sunflower, chrysanthemum, daisy, and zinnia. Her's were beautiful and the summer after she passed away, they never came up again; my mother would say, Grandma took them with her to the Garden Club in Heaven!
I've grown Dahlias, but none so beautiful as her varieties, and I've created them in paper to keep long-lasting memories of time spent in her garden.
Next, I want to share the progress of our home, which thanks to KariAnn at Thistlewood Farms, I was able to create a "watercolor" with the new App she posted about today--Waterlogue!
My apologies for not baking...but the apron could not wait! Enjoy!
