Books, gardens, birds, the environment, politics, or whatever happens to be grabbing my attention today.
Simply beautiful! :-)
It's one of those nice surprises the garden sometimes offers. I planted these dahlia tubers last year and didn't dig them at the end of the season. Usually, they don't survive to come back the next year, but these did and now they brighten my day.
That is an especially beautiful one. Now that my sister has me out of her hair, I imagine she is getting her tubers out of the basement and planting them again. How fortunate that this one wintered over.
I was completely surprised to see those plants coming up, especially since we had one of our colder winters of recent years. Sometimes there is just no accounting for Nature!
