Hortus conclusus

Study in Dahlias

No. 1

No. 2

No. 3

I will be leaving my newly blossomed plants behind for a few weeks. The dahlias that I planted from bulbs just started blooming this week and they are perfect and rosy, just like me. The herb box with the cilantro, basil, sage, and oregano is gearing up to full speed, and my pumpkins are exposing the first blossoms. I just hope they don't acquire blossom rot in my absence.


  1. OMG! Everything looks gorgeous! If you need someone to water your plants when you're gone, I'll be happy to do it. But I'm probably not the best person for the job, as I'm known for killing everything that grows by just looking at it. :)

  2. Thanks for the offer! I have someone else taking care of them, but if something happens, you can be the back-up!

  3. Wow... I wish I could take credit for the photo of flower #1. Great shot...
