And The Winner Is....

My neighbors have so kindly offered us several pumpkins
I chose a small one on the right that I plan on baking a
Shepard's pie in and this really cool one we all think it crossed with a
zucchini.

The sun finally has been shining so I dug up my dahlia's, They can
not winter over in this area so I keep them in a cool spare bedroom.
I started out with one tuber from a yard sale and here we are lots and lots of dahlias!

Of curse some raking and yard work!

The leaves have mostly gone by but lots of gold left.

When I came home this evening there had been a carrot fairy here.
yummmmm.
****
Well on to the winner of the give away!
congrats to Sara from salmon falls prims
email me your address so I can get it mailed out!

Congratulations on winning, Sara. I know about multiplying since I've divided my daylilies . I have many varieties and they all started with one piece each.
Have a great weekend.
