Great wildlife photos! That puffed-up Jay should be in a frame! I learned quite a bit about Dahlias from this post. If I ever grow them and need some information, I'll know where to go!


Your dahlias were gorgeous! You take such good close-ups. Great information about overwintering them too.

The pictures of the jay and the squirrel with snow are so fitting and beautiful.

We got a small taste of the polar vortex but nothing like the North and the West. You had such a huge temperature swing -- it's not unusual for us to have temps go from the 70s to the 30s -- but down to minus teens?! Wow. I hope the woody plants weren't too damaged, but with the sap still up those temps couldn't have been good for them.


That is a gorgeous dahlia in the post, so I suppose that's why you went to the trouble. Me, I just buy new ones every year! I know, I'm terrible. But I'm also lazy...
