Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Dilly dallying in the dahlias


Love dahlias.
the golden sunbursts... 
and shocking pink spikes
all the colors in the rainbow...except for blue. Hubby's Grand-dad was the President of the local Dahlia Society. Grand-dad always said, "If you can grow a blue dahlia, you'll become a rich man."


 Every dahila grower wants to grow a blue dahlia. Nobody's succeeded yet.

Oooohh-la-la...cherry flavored!

Grand-dad used to grow dahlias all over town. If somebody had an empty lot, he'd fill it with flowers.

All the varieties of dahlias amaze me. I'm also fond of those who take the time to grow them every year!
