NBA Draft Day Close-ups

It is NBA Draft Day, an official holiday in my house. In other words, I might as well be invisible. So I took the opportunity to make an evening trip to the Homeward Bound Memorial Garden to get up close with some of our blooming friends – beginning with Deb’s first Dahlia’s of the season…

Susan and Jeff’s Miniature Dahlias…

Maria’s Sunflowers,

Vonnie and Randy’s Roses,

Sue’s Marigolds,

and a host of others:

Next up…wide shots of the garden as the sun sets. Y’all come back now.

  1. These pictures are beautiful. I can’t wait to see pictures of the full garden. Lucky for you that it was NBA draft day.

  2. YEAH!!! the first Dahlia. Can’t wait to see it in person this weekend. It looks like it was worth the wait. I bet my sunflowers are checking it out.!!!

    1. Your bent sunflower is putting on quite a show despite touching the ground. Pictures later!

      P.S…bunnies have been in your herb garden. They had a nice meal. I’ll send a picture of the evidence.
