The challenge was another nature inspiration. This time focus on your flower garden. It is winter in Australia, my minimal flower garden was no inspiration, however I had these photos of market day on Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis,MI taken this year.
The photo shows my friend Carol checking out the Dahlias on display. I loved the reflections on the top of this stall.
What you may not know is that when I was born an uncle of my mother was a Dahlia grower and propagator. He named a new Dahlia after me (Margaret Crawford) , it was a beautiful autumn colour and we had them growing for many years. Alas, over time they died and the seed was lost forever. A beautiful memory.
I fussy cut one photo to highlight the flowers on the right.
A few photos of what my garden looks like at present - it is too cold to get out there and weed at present - beautiful sun but cold!
My beautiful hydranga, look there are green leaves there!
Thank you for indulging my memory, Margaret
