Yesterday in the Garden

I came home yesterday after a very busy week and had a few minutes before I needed to start dinner. So I grabbed my camera and went out to the backyard where I found

my new dahlias in bloom –

fuchsias – the most beautiful of the difficult flowers to spell –

Benji enjoying the catmint –

Anna’s hummingbirds coming to feed –

and I was refreshed.

Isn’t that what hobbies are for?

For Sunday Stills.

  5. Love it! I once had a fuchsia in a hanging basket and surprisingly it did pretty well. But in the central California climate, it eventually meet its demise.

  6. Those fuchsias are gorgeous and I had to copy and paste the word so that I didn’t misspell it.

  7. Beautiful! I love fuschia. I need to get a few for my hard. Dahlias are my absolute favorites
