“Earth laughs in flowers.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson
 

I picked out some dahlia tubers at the local nursery in the spring, and planted them in a nice sunny spot.  They seemed to start off slowly, but suddenly I look out and here is this massive flower on one of the plants!  It’s just gorgeous . . . I just love it when my garden surprises me like this . . .

Fragrant o’er all the western groves
The tall magnolia towers unshaded.

Yet another picture of the gorgeous Stellata Magnolia, also known at the Stellar Magnolia, or Star Magnolia.  We have three huge “bushes” in the yard.  Every year I look forward to Spring so that I can experience these beauties to their fullest.  The flower petals are already starting to drop, leaving a snow-like carpet on the ground.  Soon, all that will remain is a very large green bush with only the memory of the beautiful flowers that heralded “spring is here”!
